vestibular testing

vestibular testing

Neurology A battery of clinical tests for evaluating the neural component of the vestibular system in Pts with dysequilibrium, dizziness, loss of balance, nystagmus; VTs evaluate both the 'mechanical'–ie, the vestibule per se, and the 'neural processing' components–cerebellum
of the vestibular system; alcohol, sedatives, tranquilizers are withheld for
2–3 days before VTs. See Nystagmus, Vertigo, Vestibule.

They address the clinical examination of the dizzy patient; imaging of the temporal bone; vestibular testing; the diagnosis and treatment of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, Meniere's disease, vestibular neuritis, perilymphatic fistulas and superior semi-circular canal dehiscence syndrome, aminoglycoside vestibulotoxicity, posttraumatic dizziness, migraine-associated vertigo, and central vertigo disorders; vestibular rehabilitation; psychiatric and systemic disease implications; and special considerations for pediatric and elderly populations.
Another reason for the dissemination of logic confusion in this field is that vertigo involves several specialties, such as ORL, vestibular testing, neurology, physiotherapy, psychology, and sciences, which offer equal opportunity for different opinions following their own patients, classification, and treatment.
Audiologic and vestibular testing. Audiologic testing is not routinely recommended and is only warranted in instances when patients report hearing loss or changes.
The vestibular testing may show varying responses, progressive dysfunction from a hyperactive to a normal and then a decreased response in advanced stages of disease.
[36] measured VEMPs in three patients with an EVA syndrome who had previously undergone vestibular testing with normal results and demonstrated lower VEMP threshold scores in these patients, indicating a possible saccular dysfunction.

There is no evidence to insist that vestibular functions will directly correlate with audiometric changes,[sup][26] and the use of vestibular testing in evaluation of the disease remains controversial.
Vestibular testing included head-impulse test of the horizontal vestibulo-ocular reflex (Halmagyi, Curthoys, 1988).
Each of these patients had given a detailed clinical history, and each had undergone a complete ENT examination followed by audiologic and vestibular testing:
