New methods for diagnosis and treatment of vestibular diseases


Hegemann, S C A; Palla, P (2010). New methods for diagnosis and treatment of vestibular diseases. F1000 Medicine Reports, 2:60.

Abstract

Dizziness and vertigo are common complaints, with a lifetime prevalence of over 30%. This review provides a brief summary of the recent diagnostic and therapeutic advances in the field of neuro-otology. A special focus is placed on the clinical usefulness of vestibular tests. While these have markedly improved over the years, treatment options for vestibular disorders still remain limited. Available therapies for selected vestibular diseases are discussed.
