[Application of the new diagnostic tests for vertigo. Differentiated analysis of vestibular function]

L E Walther
HNO 2013, 61 (9): 730-7
Due to the development of new methods such as the vestibular evoked myogenic potential and the video head impulse tests, clinical vestibular diagnostic procedures are currently in an era of change. The spectrum of available techniques renders a specific, quantitative and objective analysis of vestibular reflexes possible for the first time. Moreover, a combination of different methods permits the assessment of different functional areas of the vestibular receptor. In addition to a topological diagnosis, the concept of a differentiated analysis of vestibular receptor function includes evaluation of frequency-specific functional areas (dynamic frequency analysis) and monitoring of temporal changes (time-dependent diagnostics). Consequently, the overall outcome of physiological tests can be viewed from a new perspective. This enables a comprehensive assessment of vestibulopathies in clinical practice and furthers the understanding of these disorders.
