18 Possible Causes for Caloric Stimulation Test Abnormal

  • Meniere's Disease

    This is a retrospective review of clinical data and audiovestibular test results from four children in whom symptoms suggesting Ménière's disease started at 4-7 years of age. The four patients all had spontaneous recurrent attacks of (spinning) vertigo and fluctuating low frequency sensorineural hearing loss from[…][]

  • Acoustic Neuritis

    Looking for nystagmus and abnormal patterns.  Positional testing: checking for BPPV  Caloric testing: irrigate ears with water of calibrated temperature, which stimulates[] Consists of 3 subtests: Oculomotor testing: the patient follows a visual target with their eyes.[]

  • Acoustic Neuroma

    Two cases are presented in which patients flying home shortly after translabyrinthine removal of a vestibular schwannoma (acoustic neuroma) developed acute bacterial meningitis on landing. This complication has not been described before. The incidence and management of CSF leaks after vestibular schwannoma[…][]

  • Suppurative Labyrinthitis

    INTRODUCTION: Suppurative labyrinthitis continues to result in significant hearing impairment, despite scientific efforts to improve not only its diagnosis but also its treatment. The definitive diagnosis depends on imaging of the inner ear, but it is usually clinically presumed. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the clinical factors[…][]

  • Labyrinthine Concussion

    Labyrinthine concussion due to a postauricular gunshot wound has not been well reported. Retrospective chart review. We describe an otherwise healthy 22-year-old male who received a gunshot wound to the left mastoid and subsequently reported hearing loss and rotational vertigo. Audiometric testing demonstrated[…][]

  • Labyrinthal Hemorrhage

    Established as the leading textbook on imaging diagnosis of brain and spine disorders, Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain and Spine is now in its Fourth Edition. This thoroughly updated two-volume reference delivers cutting-edge information on nearly every aspect of clinical neuroradiology. Expert[…][]

  • Labyrinth Disorder

    Abstract In some previously reported cases, facial palsy, even in Bell's palsy, involved vestibular dysfunction. Vestibular dysfunction in facial palsy is considered to be due to a retro-labyrinthine disorder such as vestibular neuronitis or acoustic neuromas. For the past 9 years we have been using the galvanic body[…][]

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo

    […] battery identify abnormalities in ocular motility as well as deficits in labyrinthine response to position change, caloric stimulation, rotational movement, and static positions[] Caloric testing is an established, widely accepted technique that is particularly useful in determining unilateral vestibular hypofunction.[] […] history and clinical examination, and may provide information for quantification, prognostication, and treatment planning. 112 The components of the vestibular function test[]

  • Vestibular Neuronitis

    In the galvanic body sway test (GBST), 9 patients (81.8%) showed abnormal thresholds.[] Seven patients (63.6%) showed canal paresis to caloric stimulation, while 3 (27.3%) showed normal responses.[] There was no significant relationship between vertiginous symptoms in the last medical examination and prodromes, vertigo type, nystagmus, righting reflex, caloric stimulation[]

  • Otosclerosis

    Abnormalities of oVEMPs and cVEMPs are more frequent than for caloric testing and BC hearing thresholds.[] RESULTS: The sequence of inner ear deficits in Group A was in the order from oVEMP test (84%), cVEMP test (51%), caloric test (38%) and mean bone-conducted (BC) hearing threshold[] (14%), exhibiting a significantly declining trend (p CONCLUSION: Otosclerosis patients with vertigo have more frequent abnormalities of oVEMPs to impulsive stimulation than[]
