Patients with canal dehiscence may present with symptoms not limited to: fatigue, autophony, vertigo and hearing loss, among others. Audiologists and otologists must take care to distinguish canal dehiscence from etiologies with similar symptoms, such as Meniere’s disease, vestibular neuritis and perilymph fistula. We will explore several case studies of patients with distinctive vestibular complaints who were ultimately diagnosed with canal dehiscence. The session will review the diagnosis, progress and post-operative outcomes related to these patients at UChicago Medicine.
