Postural Vertigo in Older Persons
Many thanks for the informative article on innovations in the area of vestibular types of vertigo.
I was merely baffled on reading “bilateral vestibulopathy … is the most frequent cause of motion-dependent postural vertigo in older patients.” How, and when, should one diagnostically evaluate potential bilateral vestibulopathy in patients with pallhypesthesia, a total hip or knee endoprosthesis, visual impairments, and subcortical arteriosclerotic encephalopathy? At this point I—and probably many other readers—would appreciate additional advice.
