Abstract

Comparative Results of Craniocorpography and the Test of Balance in Tinnitus and Vertigo Patients

Author(s): Jorge Said, Alfonso Izita, Ana Luisa Gonzalez, and Enrique Tovar

Many authors have reported different useful studies in evaluating vestibular function through vestibular, somatosensory, and visuocortical systems using the test of balance and in assessing vestibular function through the vestibulospinal system using craniocorpography. We researched 100 patients suffering from tinnitus and vertigo (36 men and 64 women). Diagnoses of vestibular dysfunction can be improved if modern physicians correlate the background, clinical description, and vestibular test results of patients suffering from tinnitus and vertigo. In this study, we report on the evaluation of vestibular function through craniocorpography and the test of balance in order to determine a better vestibular diagnosis.
