1. Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials in acute acoustic trauma.
Match Strength: 7.806
OBJECTIVES: Anatomical proximity of the saccule to the stapedial footplate points to the possibility of acoustic trauma associated with saccular dysfunction. Therefore, it was the authors' premise that abnormal vestibular evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) after acute acoustic trauma may be caused by saccular damage from very high intensity noise; consequently, irreversible hearing loss ensued. The aim of this study was to investigate the VEMP responses in those with acute acoustic trauma. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective study. SETTING: University hospital. PATIENTS: Twenty patients (29 ears) ... Read More »

2. Delivery of drugs to the inner ear.
Match Strength: 6.557
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Inner ear delivery of medicines has been a rapidly expanding field in otolaryngology. This technique provides a minimally invasive way of managing a number of otolaryngologic diagnoses and promises to provide a therapeutic option for previously untreatable disorders. The purpose of this review is to examine the literature that has been published recently (since January of 2005) in this field and to explore how this new literature has impacted on current practices. RECENT FINDINGS: While there was a significant volume of work done in this area from 1995 to 2004, publication ... Read More »

3. Summating potential-action potential waveform amplitude and width in the diagnosis of Meniere's disease.
Match Strength: 3.611
OBJECTIVES: It has been suggested that analyzing the width and amplitude of the summating potential-action potential (SP-AP) waveforms can increase the sensitivity of electrocochleography. The objective of this study was to evaluate the ratio of SP to AP amplitude (SP/AP) and SP-AP waveform width, as well as the AP latency difference to condensation and rarefaction clicks, for the diagnosis of Meniere's disease. STUDY DESIGN: This was a prospective, controlled study. METHODS: We used transtympanic electrocochleography to evaluate 21 patients with definite Meniere's disease and 19 normal ... Read More »
