The DizzyQuest: relation between self-reported hearing loss, tinnitus and objective hearing thresholds in patients with Meniere’s disease

Background The combination of a smartphone application-based vestibular diary named DizzyQuest and an iPad-based hearing questionnaire enables the evaluation of the relationship between experienced neuro-otological signs and hearing thresholds in a daily life setting. The aim was to investigate the correlation between self-reported hearing loss and hearing thresholds in patients with Meniere's disease, using the DizzyQuest and the iPad-based hearing test simultaneously. A mixed model regression analysis was conducted to look at correlations between hearing thresholds and self-reported hearing loss and tinnitus severity. The difference in self-reported hearing loss severity between both ears did not appear to be significant in terms of individual differences in PTA results between both ears, although individual differences in both ears did not significantly influence the difference in self-reported hearing loss severity between both ears. With self-reported hearing loss in affected and unaffected ears, the severity of self-reported tinnitus severity has significantly increased. Conclusion In a daily life setting, the DizzyQuest and iPad-based hearing assessment, as a result of self-reported hearing loss and tinnitus severity, as well as their relationship with hearing thresholds, can be combined.

Optimized 3D-FLAIR sequences to shorten the delay between intravenous administration of gadolinium and MRI acquisition in patients with Menière’s disease

Objects — The aim of this study was to shorten the 4-h gap between the intravenous administration of gadolinium and MRI for hydrops evaluation in patients with Meni U00e8reu2019s disease. At each acquisition time, we also investigated the number of endolymphatic organs, the presence of endolymphatic hydrops, and blood-labyrinthine barrier impairment. Results For both ears, the signal strength ratio was significantly non-inferior at 2 h relative to 4 h, with a mean geometric signal intensity ratio of 0. 83. Patient with definite Meniu2019s disease can be diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging with delayed 3D-FLAIR sequences. u2022 Reducing this delay between intravenous injection and MRI acquisition may have ramifications for clinical practice for both patients and imaging departments.

Oral splint therapy in patients with Menière’s disease and temporomandibular disorder: a long-term, controlled study

The objective of this study was to determine the effect of oral splint therapy on audio-vestibular symptoms in patients with Meniu00e8reu2019s disease and temporomandibular disorder. Patients with MD and TMD who were undergoing gnatological therapy were among the 37 patients in the Treatment Group: 37 patients with MD and TMD who underwent gnatological therapy. Patients with MD and TMD who had never been exposed to gnatological therapy are among the 26 patients with MD and TMD who had never been through gnatological therapy. In 86. 5% and class B, respectively, in 13. 5% of patients, the treatment group demonstrated vertigo control of class A in 86. 5% and class B. Class A in 19. 2% of patients and class B in 31. 5%, class D in 31 percent, class A in 19. 2%, class C in 31. 8%, class D in 30. 9%, class A in 29. 7%, and class F in 7. 7%. Conclusions Oral splint therapy may be a cost-effective treatment in patients with TMD and uncontrolled MD disease.
