Middle fossa vestibular neurectomy is especially useful for treatment of Meniere's disease. We treated 59 cases of Meniere's disease with this technique and followed them up for at least ten years. Middle fossa vestibular neurectomy was effective against vertigo in Meniere's disease in 100% of the cases with unilateral involvement. Hearing, as well as tinnitus and hyperacusis, showed a clearly favorable evolution after vestibular neurectomy. The excellent long-term effects of this procedure on vertigo and low incidence of complications make middle fossa vestibular neurectomy one of the most effective surgical treatments for Meniere's disease.
