Otosclerosis and Meniere's syndrome: diagnosis and treatment.


Occasionally a patient with otosclerosis and a conductive hearing loss will develop typical findings of Meniere's syndrome in the involved ear, years later. A review of clinical and pathological studies in the literature and in our laboratory and clinic indicates a likely cause-and-effect relationship for these cases. The pathology and pathogenesis of the syndrome of otosclerosis and Meniere's syndrome is discussed. A stapedectomy/sacculotomy was used to treat 17 patients, 13 of whom acquired a satisfactory result in terms of improvement of hearing and control of vertigo. This technique and findings are described and discussed.
