  Purpose

Stellate ganglion block (SGB) has been the alternative treatment of Meniere's disease for years. However, objective evidence of the effect of SGB was still lack. The investigators conducted a randomized controlled study to examine the immediate effects of SGB in SP/AP of electrocochleography (ECoG).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • SP/AP of Electrocochleography [ Time Frame: ECoG was reorded 2 hours after SGB ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SP/AP of ECoG was recorded 2 hours after SGB. to be compared with the SP/AP of ECoG recorded before treatment


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • SP/AP recorded at 4 hours after SGB [ Time Frame: 4 hours after SGB ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SP/AP recorded at 4 hours after SGB was compared with that of pretreatment with SGB

  • SP/AP recorded at 6 hours after SGB [ Time Frame: 6 hours after SGB ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SP/AP recorded at 4 hours after SGB was compared with the SP/AP recorded before SGB

  • scores of verbal scale for vertigo recorded at 6 hours after SGB [ Time Frame: 6 hours after SGB ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    scores of verbal scale for vertigo recorded at 6 hours after SGB was compared to the scores recorded before SGB

Detailed Description:

Ten patients were randomly assigned to receive stellate ganglion block. These ten patients made up the experimental group. Another ten patients in the control group were assigned to receiving one dosage of oral medications: 0.25mg of erispan@ (fludiazine) , 25mg cephadol@ (diphenidol), and 200mg kentons@ (tocopherol nicotinate).
