Abstract

In this study, we review the results of Meniere's disease treatment using microdose gentamicin delivered directly to the round window using the Round Window Microcatheter (IntraEar, Inc., Denver, CO). A total of 18 patients were studied, with follow-up ranging from 6 to 18 months. In 15 of 18 patients (83%), tinnitus was improved significantly throughout the follow-up period. Vertigo was eliminated in all patients, and pressure was relieved in 17 of 18 (94%). These preliminary data suggest tbat Round Window Microcatheter-delivered gentamicin is a safe and effective treatment for the reduction of tinnitus, vertigo, and pressure associated with Meniere's disease
