Symmetry measures of vestibular evoked myogenic potentials using objective detection criteria

Brantberg, Krister and Fransson, Per-Anders LU (2001) In International Journal of Audiology 30(3). p.189-196
Abstract
Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP) has been put forward as a test to evaluate the symmetry of saccular function. In the present study, the symmetry of VEMP was evaluated in 23 healthy subjects using automatic analysis. In response to binaural clicks with a stimulus repetition rate of 4/s all subjects revealed significant VEMP on both sides. The ipsilateral response to monaural clicks was similar to the response to binaural clicks. Although there were large interindividual variations in amplitude, there were only small variations in latency. VEMP measurements were also assessed using different stimulus rates. At the higher stimulus rates there was a decrease in the VEMP amplitude but there were only small changes in the latency.... (More)

These findings might suggest that amplitude measures are more likely than latency measures to reveal small vestibular lesions. (Less)
