The head impulse test as a predictor of videonystagmography caloric test lateralization according to the level of examiner experience: A prospective open-label study

January 14, 2018  |  Ashraf Awadie, MD; Yehuda Holdstein, MD; Margalit Kaminer, MSc; Avi Shupak, MD


We conducted a study to compare how well the head impulse test (HIT), without and with eye-movement recordings, would predict videonystagmographic (VNG) caloric test lateralization when performed by a resident and an experienced otoneurologist. This prospective, open-label,...

Computerized dynamic posturography for evaluating dizziness in patients with scarred orbital content

August 24, 2017  |  Nathan Shlamkovitch, MD; Ephraim Eviatar, MD; Haim Gavriel, MD


Our objective was to assess the capability of computerized dynamic posturography (CDP) to evaluate dizziness in blind patients who lack corneoretinal potential. We performed a retrospective analysis of 2 young blind subjects with intraorbital scarring who complained of...

Simultaneous binaural bithermal caloric testing: Clinical value

January 25, 2017  |  Robert T. Sataloff, MD, DMA, FACS; Meghan L. Pavlick, AuD, FAAA; James (Drew) McCaffrey, MD; John M. Davis, MD; Shannon M. Stewart, AudD


The aim of this retrospective review was to determine the clinical value of simultaneous binaural bithermal caloric testing (SBT) versus alternate binaural bithermal caloric testing (ABB) in the setting of a tertiary care neurotology clinic. Charts of 131 adults who had...

Dizziness in the elderly: Diagnosing its causes in a multidisciplinary dizziness unit

May 8, 2014  |  Roeland B. van Leeuwen, MD, PhD; Tjasse D. Bruintjes, MD, PhD


We conducted a study to determine the causes of dizziness in patients aged 70 years and older who had been referred to our multidisciplinary dizziness clinic between Nov. 1, 2000, and Dec. 31, 2008. This population was made up of 731 patients-254 men (34.7%) and 477 women (65.3...

Evaluating the role of single-photon emission computed tomography in the assessment of neurotologic complaints

May 8, 2014  |  Shruti S. Joglekar, MD; Jason R. Bell, MD; Malka Caroline, MD; Paul J. Chase, DO, FAOCR; James Domesek, MD; Pinal S. Patel, ARRT, CNMT; Robert T. Sataloff, MD, DMA, FACS


We conducted a retrospective study to reexamine the value of single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in the evaluation of patients with neurotologic complaints, and to assess the intra- and inter-radiologist variability of SPECT readings. Our study population was...

Inferior vestibular neuritis in a fighter pilot: A case report

June 12, 2013  |  Xie Su Jiang, MD, PhD; Jia Hong Bo, PhD; Xu Po, MS; and Zheng Ying Juan, BSC


Spatial disorientation in airplane pilots is a leading factor in many fatal flying accidents. Spatial orientation is the product of integrative inputs from the proprioceptive, vestibular, and visual systems. One condition that can lead to sudden pilot incapacitation in flight...

Bilateral multicanal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo coexisting with a vestibular schwannoma: Case report

January 1, 2011  |  Selmin Karatayli-Ozgursoy, MD, Greta C. Stamper, AuD, Larry B. Lundy, MD, and David A. Zapala, PhD


We describe a rarely encountered case of coexisting bilateral multicanal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and vestibular schwannoma in a 56-year-old woman. The patient had presented with a 10-year history of dizziness and imbalance, and her vestibular findings were...

The clinical reliability of vestibular evoked myogenic potentials

April 1, 2010  |  Matthew L. Bush, MD, Raleigh O. Jones, MD, and Jennifer B. Shinn, PhD


Vestibular evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) testing has gained popularity as a diagnostic modality in otolaryngology and audiology. To maximize the utility of this test, examiners need the availability of ideal test settings and reliable norms. We conducted a prospective study...
