Ménière's disease is an inner ear disorder, characterised by intermittent attacks of vertigo, fluctuating hearing loss, tinnitus and sense of pressure in the ear. The pathophysiology is not fully understood; however, it is believed to be associated with abnormal fluid regulation of the endolymph. Whilst medical therapy is sufficient in most cases, some patients require surgical intervention. Endolymphatic sac decompression is one of the surgical methods that can be employed in the treatment of patients with medically intractable Ménière's disease. It aims to reduce vertigo by relieving endolymphatic pressure in the cochlea and vestibular system. This video demonstrates Mr Sreeshyla Basavaraj’s surgical technique.
