Caloric test results of patients with unilateral hearing loss Patient Number Group Laterality Canal Paresis Weakness 1 A Rt Lt 14.99% 2 A Lt Rt 18.07% 3 A Rt Rt 16.09% 4 A Rt Rt 18.41% 5 B Rt Rt 81.48% 6 B Rt Rt 30.84% 8 B Rt Rt 50.88% 9 B Rt Rt 64.97% Canal paresis value of 25% or more was defined as diagnostic criteria for unilateral vestibular dysfunction.
After admission, patient underwent a complete ENT examination with otoscopy, Pure Tone Audiometry (PTA), Acoustic Immittance Test, Transient Evoked Otoacoustic Emissions (TEOAEs), Distortion Products Otoacoustic Emissions (DPOAEs), Tympanometry, Cervical Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potentials (cVEMPs), and caloric test.
The alternate binaural bithermal caloric test showed a 38% reduced vestibular response right and a directional preponderance of 54% to the right.
On the other hand, the comparative analysis of caloric test results in patients with LC-BPPV (ageotropic- and geotropic-type) and PC-BPPV and the effect of symptom duration on caloric responses was not reported before.
Caloric test, SVV test, HIT, and vHIT were normal and did not show any deficit in VOR.
No spontaneous, positional, or neck torsion nystagmus was elicited, and the results of the alternate binaural caloric test were normal.
The patients who had been followed up in the "vertigo outpatient clinic" for a long time had had complete blood count, pure tone audiogram, vestibule-ocular tests, vestibulospinal tests, and caloric test on their admission.
The simultaneous binaural bithermal caloric test elicited a type 2 response that was consistent with a reduced vestibular response (RVR) right.
During the simultaneous binaural bithermal caloric test, a left-beating nystagmus was seen in response to the warm stimulus.
The altemate binaural bithermal caloric test elicited a 56% reduced vestibular response (RVR) on the left, and the simultaneous binaural bithermal test yielded a type 2 response and an RVR left.
The alternate binaural bithermal caloric test yielded a normal reduced vestibular response and directional preponderance.
The alternate binaural bithermal (ABB) caloric test, when corrected for the preexisting nystagmus, did not induce any left-beating nystagmus.
