ABSTRACT Background: Ménière’s disease (MD) is characterized by recurrent, sudden episodes of disabling vertigo. A previous randomized, controlled study demonstrated a high efficacy of a fixed combination of cinnarizine 20mg and dimenhydrinate 40mg (Arlevert®, tid.) in MD, with no statistically significant difference to betahistine (dimesylate salt, 12mg, tid). Objective: This post hoc analysis was performed [...]

Types of dizziness, evidence-based approach

Dizziness affects about 20 % of general population and more then 30 % of patients. Thus, being important the problem has descriptive manner of approach and no even exact identification. Therefore, the problem of this presentation is identification of types of dizziness with instrumental investigation methods. The data of 849 patients has been examined with [...]

Hygroma. Report, a Case

Cystic hygroma was first described in 1828 and referred to as a “moist tumor.Today, this benign developmental tumor is recognized as a lymphatic malformation (also known as a lymphangioma).Cystic hygroma is a benign lymphatic malformation representing 5% to 6% of all benign tumors and 1% of all tumors (benign and malignant). Most (90%) cystic hygromas [...]

Vestibular disorders in old age vertigo

Good health is not only a privilege of young generation but also of elderly people. Nowadays 13% of the population has reached the age of 65, and one third of them have vertiginous attack at least once in their life. 45-70% of the elderly has one or more drop attacks yearly. In the Semmelweis University [...]

Neurootological findings in patients, suffering from occipital skull fractures

Skull traumas play an important roll in neurootological expertise writing. Skull traumas may occur at the rhinobasis, i.e. frontally, at the otobasis, i.e. laterally as well as from behind, i.e. occipitally. For this paper we have elected 26 cases of occipital skull fractures which were verified by radiology. It is known that the shockwaves of [...]

Current trends of neurootological pharmacotherapy

Major neurootological complaints, which mostly need drug treatment, are: giddiness, dizziness, hearing loss and tinnitus. The neurootological differential diagnosis is the basis for planning the mostly supportive treatment of vertigo patients. In planning the therapy, we are utilizing a computerbased expert system CLAMEDEX for establishing the neurootological diagnosis through history, ORL inspection, ENG, calorics, rotatory [...]

Typical Caloric ENG Findings in the Claussen-Butterfly in Tinnitus Cases

The aim of this study was to investigate the different caloric findings in the Claussen-Butterflies in tinnitus patients under the assumption of a closely interrelated stato-acoustic network and to correlate these findings with our different tinnitus types. For this we used the NODEC IV data bank and searched for the most frequent types of butterflies [...]

Hamangioblastoma. Report a Case

By Definition HEMANGIOBLASTOMA is a benign tumor that may develop on the nervous system that may occur sporadically or in association with Hippel-Lindau disease. It accounts for approximately 2% of intracranial tumors, arising most frequently in the cerebellar hemispheres and vermis. Histologically, the tumors are composed of multiple capillary and sinusoidal channels lined with endothelial [...]

Acustic neurinoma. report a case.

By Definition Acoustic Neurinoma is a benign tumor that may develop on the hearing and balance nerves near the inner ear. The tumor results from an overproduction of Schwann cells – small, sheet-like cells that normally wrap around nerve fibers like onion skin and help support the nerves. When growth is abnormally excessive, Schwann cells [...]

Die moderne diagnostik bei gleichgewichtsfunktionsstörungen einschließlich eng, ccg und vbep

Die menschliche Gleichgewichtsfunktion wird durch ein sogenanntes Raumkonzept mit Einspeisung von Informationen aus der Gleichgewichtstetrade, nämlich Auge, Vestibularis, Cochlea und Propriozept im menschlichen Hirnstamm gebildet. Ergänzt wird die Gleichgewichtsregulation durch cerebelläre und kortikale Musterverarbeitungsprozesse und Speicherinhalte. Gleichgewichtsfunktionsstörungen können an den verschiedensten Orten der genannten Rezeptoren, wie auch innerhalb des Zentralnervensystemes entstehen. Für die diagnostische Suche [...]
