Sound induced vestibular evoked myogenic potentials
(VEMP) on the surface of the sternocleidomastoid
muscle constitute the basis of the saccular function
test. In order to assess the saccular function
VEMP test was performed in presenting case with
unilateral Menieres disease having profound sensorineural
hearing loss at the contralateral ear. The
saccular response was absent on the affected side
with normal caloric response. However VEMP
response was normal on the profound sensorineural
hearing loss with canal paresis. There may be saccular
dysfunction in Menieres disease.
