Abstract
Background: Meniere?s syndrome or disease (MS/D) is typically characterized by episodic vertigo, aural fullness, tinnitus and fluctuating hearing loss. There are multiple options available for treatment with variation in consensus on the best intervention. Objective: To evaluate the evidence on the efficacy of intratympanic therapies [steroids, gentamicin, antiviral therapy and other therapies] on the frequency and severity of vertigo and other symptoms of MS/D Search strategy: A literature search was performed on amed, embase, hmic, medline, psycinfo, bni, cinahl, health business elite, central and Cochrane Ear, Nose and Throat disorders group trials register using various MeSH. The search was restricted to English and human subjects and the last date of search was Dec 2014 Selection Criteria: Randomized controlled trials of intratympanic therapies [steroids, gentamicin and antiviral agents, latanoprost] versus a placebo or another treatment. Results: 8 RCT?s were analyzed comparing intratympanic steroids, gentamicin, Ganciclovir (antiviral) and latanoprost versus another form of intratympanic treatment or placebo. Conclusions: On the basis of 6 RCT?s (n=242) there is evidence to support the effectiveness of intratympanic steroids and gentamicin to control symptoms of vertigo in MS/D albeit with a risk of hearing loss in gentamicin. However, there was no consensus found on doses or treatment protocols. There was no evidence for the use of other forms of intratympanic therapy (antivirals and latanoprost) in MS/D
