Meniere's attack - a volume or pressure phenomenon?
Authors: Djennaoui I, Avan P Abstract Meniere's disease (MD) still raises since its discovery in 1860 pathophysiological and etiopathogenical issues. The main pathophysiological feature that has emerged for decades is an anatomic one, the endolymphatic hydrops (EH), defined by the inflation of the endolymphatic part of the membranous labyrinth. However, the causal relationship between EH and MD has not been proven.Several attempts have been achieved in animals to induce EH. The best known is the blockage of the vestibular duct, which causes a chronic volume inflation of the endolymphatic part. This model is charact...

Video head impulse test saccades and loss of cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potentials are late vestibular footprints of cochlear implantation.
CONCLUSIONS: Even though VHIT gain has been reported to be affected in the immediate post-implantation period, the findings in this study show that VHIT gain is normalized in the long-term. However, cochlear implantation is associated with the occurrence of VHIT saccades in the long-term and these are associated with lower VHIT gain values. In addition, cVEMP responses are significantly reduced long-term on implanted ears, which agrees with other studies with shorter follow-up.

'Gaze shift dynamic visual acuity: A functional test of gaze stability that distinguishes unilateral vestibular hypofunction.
Authors: Chen PY, Jheng YC, Huang SE, Po-Hung Li L, Wei SH, Schubert MC, Kao CL Abstract BACKGROUND: Embedded within most rapid head rotations are gaze shifts, which is an initial eye rotation to a target of interest, followed by a head rotation towards the same target. Gaze shifts are used to acquire an image that initially is outside of the participant's current field of vision. Currently, there are no tools available that evaluate the functional relevance of a gaze shift.

CONCLUSIONS: Normative estimates for the DVAT and GST may assist in the clinical interpretation of outcomes when used in post-concussion evaluation for collegiate athletes.

Analysis of semicircular canal function as evaluated by video Head Impulse Test in patients with vestibular schwannoma.
CONCLUSIONS: From the results of the relationship between hearing loss and VOR gain, the damage to the audio and vestibular systems in patients with VS may be correlated. As it has been suggested that tumor size was not a significant factor in the VOR gain evaluated by vHIT, multifactorial causes rather than the simple compression of the vestibular nerves alone may be related to the dysfunction of the semicircular canals in patients with vestibular schwannoma.
