Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials in delayed endolymphatic
Other diagnostic considerations for destructive lesions in the mastoid include endolymphatic
sac tumors and contiguous lesions from nasopharyngeal carcinoma and paragangliomas.
In our study, the median for disyllabic speech understanding after surgery was 78% for patients who underwent ablative procedure [gentamicin, n=2; surgical (labyrinthectomy, n=3 or endolymphatic
sac drainage, n=3)] and 76% for patients who were only managed with medical treatment (p=0.975).
The differential diagnostic considerations for a middle ear mass include both benign neoplasms (e.g., adenoma, endolymphatic
sac tumor, choristoma, cholesteatoma, cholesterol granuloma) and malignant neoplasms (e.g., squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and sarcoma).
sac: Its importance in inner ear immune responses.
The inner ear also harbors this [Na.sup.+]/K/Cl cotransport system, located mainly in the stria vascularis, spiral ligament, and endolymphatic
According to this model, two contiguous fluidic systems--the perilymphatic system and the endolymphatic
system--are in hydrostatic equilibrium across a compliant membrane.
Dizziness can be caused by a number of different mechanisms following TAs, including BPPV, labyrinthine concussion, whiplash injury, perilymphatic fistula, traumatic endolymphatic
hydrops, and central lesions such as brain concussion, hemorrhage, and diffuse axonal injury [1,5].

hydrops: Five-year review.
hydrops (EH) is thought to be the pathophysiological mechanism associated with MD [3-5].
(1,4,5,10) The resultant endolymphatic
movement leads to deflection of the superior canal cupula away from the utricle (ampullofugal flow).
Irrigation of the ear canal with hot and cold water creates an endolymphatic
flow in opposite directions.
