Habilitation of Auditory and Vestibular Dysfunction

Abstract

Although unilateral hearing loss is often the initial sign of vestibular schwannoma (VS), the pathogenesis of the associated structures within the cerebellopontine angle can result in vestibular, facial, or vascular symptoms. Removal of a VS causes deficits in hearing, balance, and gaze stability. The resulting hearing loss eliminates the benefits of binaural listening that provide localization, loudness summation, and listening-in-noise ability. Reduced balance and gaze stability increase fall risk. This review discusses modern treatment options for auditory and vestibular rehabilitation including contralateral routing of signals (CROS), bilateral CROS, bone-anchored implants, tinnitus management, gaze and gait stability exercises.
