Abstract

Vestibular Evoked Potentials in Two Patients with Bilateral Vestibular Loss

Author(s): L. Constantinescu , D. Schneider, C.-F. Claussen

The Brain Electrical Activity Mapping (BEAM) of Vestibular Evoked Potentials (VestEP) is a new method in the toolbox of the neurootologist. Two cases of bilateral vestibular loss, diagnosed by classical neurootological methods (highlighted by caloric and optokinetic tests' electronystagmography recording), are reported. The additional information, provided by the Vestibular Evoked Potentials (VestEP) and its high clinical significance for a more accurate neurootologic diagnosis are discussed.
