Ménière’s disease is another vestibular pathology. It is a chronic disease described for the first time in 1861 by Prosper Ménière. Ipateints suffer from a combination of rotatory vertigo crises from 20 minutes to 2-3 hours (up to 6 hours in some patients), hearing loss and tinnitus. It is characterized by recurrent and unpredictable crises that accumulate over time.
In Europe, 1 person out of 5000 is affected, more predominantly women between 20 and 60 years old1.
In Ménière disease, the endolymph is present in excess which could increase inner ear pressure and contribute to symptoms.
The disease progresses rapidly and is difficult to predict, and the frequency of attacks varies between patients.
