Description

Meniere’s disease is a vestibulocochlear disease thought to be caused by endolymphatic hydrops, or increased fluid pressure in the inner ear. At the time of this review, guidelines for diagnosis require audiometric evaluation and clinical judgment of symptoms. There is no requirement for the use of objective diagnostic tools in the diagnosis of Meniere’s disease. Electrocochleography was previously a variable and unreliable tool for diagnosing Meniere’s disease. However, with improvements in its technology, electrocochleography could play a greater role in evaluating Meniere’s disease. This poster compares several electrocochleography presentation methods, as well as different sound stimuli, and their diagnostic efficacy.
