DiscussionThese preliminary results suggest that even if patients believe that they have reduced cognition caused by their vestibular deficits, it remains challenging to demonstrate the effects using simple (standard) objective cognitive measures. We discuss the mismatch in results in terms of cognitive specificity, complexity and compensation. We propose that the objective measures may more likely show effects if combined with a dual task, or by performing complex imagery tasks, adding strain to cognitive resources.

This study provides new information on the postural balance pattern observed after vestibular loss in rats. These data show a new way of quantifying the postural deficit associated with vestibular damage and the compensatory strategies adopted. These results could guide us on the validation of pharmacological compounds favoring the balance recovery.

AbstractPurpose of the reviewTo define the best up-to-date practical approach to treat benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).Recent findingsBoth posterior and horizontal canal BPPV canalith repositioning maneuvers (Semont, Epley, and Gufoni ’s maneuvers) are level 1 evidence treatment for evidence-based medicine. The choice of maneuver (since their efficacy is comparable) is up to the clinician’s preferences, failure of the previous maneuver, or movement restrictions of the patient. Maneuvers for controversial variants, such as ant erior canal and apogeotropic posterior canal BPPV, have weaker evidence of...

CONCLUSION: The impact of migraine on driving performance has been largely neglected, with few studies specifically designed to address the topic, and relevant studies were generally small with limited control of confounders. This area requires more focus, given a potential for impact on road safety. PMID: 31792964 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This article reviews the recent literature about vasculitis of the ear or the cochleovestibular system, focusing on giant-cell arteritis, Takayasu's arteritis, polyarteritis nodosa, Kawasaki disease, microscopic polyangiitis, granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), eosinophilic GPA, systemic lupus erythematosus, Cogan's syndrome and Behçet's disease. Recent findings In patients with vasculitis, hearing impairment is a frequent problem, followed by tinnitus and vertigo. The severity of sensorineural hearing loss can range from mild impairment to deafness. Autoimmune diseases can induce a conductive hearing loss as...

Conclusions: A weak correlation between RD and abnormal C-test is noted. Presence of RD and abnormal C-test in patients with HSC-BPPV predicts a higher recurrence rate. PMID: 31782327 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractObjectiveThe purpose of this study is to investigate the role of cervical radiography in the study of patients with vertigo and dizziness.PatientsThis is a retrospective single-institution case series study of 493 patients suffering from vertigo and dizziness who were referred (from January 2011 to December 2012) to the hospital to study those symptoms.MethodsWe studied cervical radiographies, CT and MRI of the cervical spine made in the sample and the radiological findings. We analyzed demographic characteristics, presence of psychiatric pathology and emergency assistance due to vertigo in patients who have underg...
