Otolaryngology is a specialization concerning illnesses of the ears, nose, sinus cavities and vocal cords. An analysis of the patient’s medical history, directed according to his or her specific problems is followed by a detailed examination of all ENT organs.
Using a camera mounted on a microscope, optics or fiberscope, the patient can follow the exam on a screen. The ear is the organ of the hearing and equilibrium, which we investigate in cases of hearing loss and vertigo. The ENT examination is systematically performed to patients with sleep disorders, in collaboration with other specialists of our medical center.
In our laboratory we can perform highly specialized audiometric and electro physiologic tests to properly diagnose and treat the audio-vestibular disorders.
In particular :
- Videonystagmographie (VNG) for testing inner ear and central motor functions.
- Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs)
- Brainstem auditory evoked potentials
- Otoacoustic Emissions Testing (OEA) and distortion products of otoacoustic emissions (DPOEA)
