Are there any home remedies or helpful advise that can ease symptoms of superior semicircular canal dehiscence? I am going on my honeymoon in 3 days.

Not really : Scc dehiscence syndrome usually causes a conductive hearing loss. The ultimate treatment is surgery to block off the bad canal. There aren't any home remedies to fully eliminate this problem ...Read more

I need surgery for semicircular canal dehiscence. I know it involves a craniotomy. I am terrified. How bad is the recovery? Is it worth it?

Research this ...: Yourself on the internet and be prepared with your questions to discuss them with your otologist before scheduling surgery. Is your diagnosis based on symptoms alone?

Your otologist will be able to help you sort it out. ...Read more

SSC dehisence: Superior semicircular canal (ssc) dehiscence syndrome is a rare but increasingly recognized condition in which vertigo and hearing symptoms are elicited by sound or pressure due to an anatomic defect at one part of the inner ear (ssc) in charge of our vestibular (balance)system. There is usually a type of conductive hearing loss as well as sound-induced vertigo. High-res ct scan helps diagnosis. ...Read more

What is the relation between the field of vision and the semicircular canals?

What is the relation between the field of vision and the semicircular canals?

Nothing direct: The semicircular canals maintain balance and orientation. The field of vision is the extent of side vision; commonly as a warning signal for things approaching from the side. Dysfunction of the canals does not change the field. Shrinking or changes in the field do not affect the function of the canals. They are both important but independent. ...Read more

Labrinths, ossicles, semicircular canals, juglar foramin are all normal. Does vertinex help me to remove tinnitus and my lost hearing 50% to normal?

Labrinths, ossicles, semicircular canals, juglar foramin are all normal. Does vertinex help me to remove tinnitus and my lost hearing 50% to normal?

Hearing loss: The tinnitus is a consequence of the hearing loss. If this is a nerve/sensorineural loss the medication you mention will not work. Depending on how bad the hearing is and how bothersome the tinnitus a cochlear implant is a consideration, though its use for this one sided loss is still off label. If a conductive loss surgery may be able to fix that. ...Read more

If patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo do not get the epley maneuver, will the otoconia stay stuck in semicircular canals forever, or do they eventually fall out naturally?

If patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo do not get the epley maneuver, will the otoconia stay stuck in semicircular canals forever, or do they eventually fall out naturally?

Probably not forever: Good question. The epley (; semont) maneuvers are relatively recent discoveries so in the not-too-distant past when people developed this type of vertigo it was usually self-limited (doctors used to blame it on viruses). Besides falling out, the otoconia may dissolve spontaneously. I theorize that herbs known to help dissolve kidney stones like chanca piedra ; golden coin grass might help this too. ...Read more
