As per guidelines of American Association of Otolaryngologists and Head-Neck Surgeons (AAO-HNS, 1995) [10], the patients were diagnosed as definite Meniere's disease when they had two or more definitive spontaneous episodes of vertigo for 20 minutes or longer, audiologically documented sensorineural hearing loss (frequencies 0.5, 1, 2, and 3 kHz) on at least one occasion, tinnitus or aural fullness in the affected ear and other causes being excluded.
The hearing thresholds of all subjects were also measured audiologically. Patients in the CSOM group were re-tested for ET functions and hearing thresholds 3 months following surgery.
In an earlier study, PCC rates in children with hearing impairment were lower when compared to audiologically normal children [8].
Another limitation is the need to establish normative values for particular methodologies of this test, which requires long-lasting studies on a population of patients who are audiologically and neurologically healthy.
