Abstract

This was a retrospective study of 1000 consecutive files from patients attending a vestibular investigation unit at a tertiary referral institution. A multidiscipline team consisting of audiologists, neurologists and ear, nose and throat surgeons collaborate together to provide this specialty service, which is offered to vestibular dysfunction patients and their managing doctors. The objective of this study was to document the degree of subjective and functional auditory and vestibular impairment in a large sample of patients attending the unit. Vestibular-disordered patients have additional subjective and functional impairments and the impairment information collected in this study identified the most prevalent needs of vestibular patients, and the areas in which our service could be improved.
