Objective: To compare the efficacy of intratympanic dexamethasone (ID), intratympanic gentamicin (IG), and decompression of the endolymphatic sac (ESD) for intractable vertigo in Meniere's disease. Study Design and Setting: This prospective study was conducted at Hacettepe University Medical Faculty, a tertiary care center. Dexamethasone was applied through a ventilation tube in 24 patients, intratympanic gentamicin (also through a ventilation tube) to 16 patients, and 25 patients underwent ESD. Results: Satisfactory control of vertigo was 72%, 75%, and 52%, respectively for the ID, IG, and ESD. Two patients in the gentamicine group had total hearing loss. In the dexamethasone group, hearing level remained the same in 46% of the patients with 16% increase and 38% decrease (30% 10dB and 8% 20 dB). Conclusion: If the vertiginous symptoms still persist after 6 months of medical treatment, ID can be started. If there is no further improvement after 3 months with ID, patients with profound sensorineural hearing loss undergo treatment with IG, ESD is reserved for patients with good hearing. If ESD also fails, patients with good hearing may undergo vestibular nerve section; patients with nonservicable hearing become candidates for labyrinthectomy.

Update Silverstein MicroWick – dexamethasone
Preserve / restore hearing and eliminate or reduce symptoms associated with illness
Procedure performed on 7/17
In hospital by 11 am out by 5 pm
Felt good coming out of surgery no associated pain
or symptoms
Continued to fell good and recovery progressed positive
On Saturday felt well enough to accept invite to local river. Enjoyed time with family
Sunday attended church but left early due to feeling extremely fatigued, dizziness and nauseous.
Slept the remaining of the day and continued to sleep off and on until Tuesday morning. Waking for small meals and medication. Tuesday I reached out to doctors office. Advised to continue dexamethasone drops and Diphenidol. Wednesday I started to feel recovered and my appetite had returned. I continued to feel recovered. Thursday, by mid afternoon all the symptoms that had subsided had returned and I was back in bed.
I live in San Antonio Texas and the storm had made its way to town. So now I question if I’m struggling with symptoms because of the procedure or the change in weather.
Can anyone offer any to do’s if it’s weather related ?
Or procedure related ?

The most common treatment for sudden deafness, especially in cases where the cause is unknown, is corticosteroids. Steroids are used to treat many different disorders and usually work by reducing inflammation, decreasing swelling, and helping the body fight illness. Steroids are usually prescribed in pill form. In recent years, direct injection of steroids behind the eardrum into the middle ear (from here the steroids travel into the inner ear), called intratympanic corticosteroid therapy, has grown in popularity. In 2011, a clinical trial supported by the NIDCD showed that intratympanic steroids were no less effective than oral steroids , but were less comfortable overall for patients. They remain an option for people who can’t take oral steroids.

A single trial containing 22 patients, with a low risk of bias was included. This trial found that after 24 months, compared with placebo , the use of intratympanic dexamethasone demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in vertigo as defined by a respective improvement in functional level (90% versus 42%), class (82% versus 57%), change in Dizziness Handicap Inventory scores ( versus ) and mean vertigo subjective improvement (90% versus 57%). The treatment regime described by the authors involved daily injections of dexamethasone solution 4 mg/ml for five consecutive days. These results were clinically significant. No complications were reported.
