The incidence of vestibular disorders among the patients suffering from otosclerosis


MT Nasretdinova, KHE Karabaev

The aim of the investigation was to detect the occurrence of vestibular symptoms among patients suffering from otosclerosis, as well as their dependence on the form of otosclerosis. The study included 90 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of "otosclerosis" and the absence of concomitant diseases that can cause vestibular symptoms. Patients were interviewed and carefully examined. It was found that 16.7% of patients had vestibular asymmetry, which exceeds the rate of vestibular imbalance in the General population. The majority of patients with vestibular complaints and symptoms were in the group with unilateral sensorineural hearing loss, which, however, may not be a marker of unilateral vestibular deficit.
