Can we use electrocochleography
as a clinical tool in the diagnosis of Meniere's disease during the early symptomatic period?
during cochlear implantation.
during Cochlear Implantation for Hearing Preservation.
was supposed to be the most specific test to diagnose Meniere's disease for a long time.
Diagnosing patients with cochlear hydrops involves a thorough history and physical examination along with diagnostic testing, including audiometry, electrocochleography
, and brainstem responses.
Intraoperative force and electrocochleography
measurements in an animal model of cochlear implantation.
In addition, 22 patients had undergone preoperative transtympanic electrocochleography
according to the method described by Aran.
Based on the above discussion, it is mandatory to identify and select candidates for surgical exploration, considering the possibility of using less invasive diagnostic tools, such as the detection of perilymph-specific protein [20-22], neurophysiological tests (electrocochleography
), multifrequency tympanometry , instrumental examination (vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials) , and low-frequency sound stimulation during posturography .
In an experiment by Walsted et al, the authors drained CSF from 18 guinea pigs and compared their pre- and post-drainage electrocochleography
results with those of 18 untreated control animals.
Analysis of Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potentials and Electrocochleography
in Noise Induced Hearing Loss.
All patients had undergone a full evaluation of their hearing loss, including audiometry, otoacoustic emission testing, electrocochleography
, and brainstemevoked response testing, depending on the individual's underlying etiology.
(ECochG), a measure of electrical activity from the cochlea and the auditory nerve, is considered to be the only objective electrophysiological tool able to measure EH [7-9].
