• diffusion
  • If the transport of nitrogen into the vascular compartment by perfusion exceeds removal of helium by perfusion, while transfer of helium into the vascular compartment by diffusion from the perilymph and endolymph exceeds the counterdiffusion of nitrogen, this may result in a temporary increase in total gas tension, as the input of nitrogen exceeds the removal of helium, which can result in bubble formation and growth.

  • processes
  • However, Ménière disease is more correctly understood as endolymphatic hydrops without a determined etiology-that is, idiopathic endolymphatic hydrops-whereas Ménière syndrome can occur secondary to various processes interfering with normal production or resorption of endolymph. (medscape.com)
  • potential
  • When a sound is presented, the endocochlear potential changes either positive or negative in the endolymph, depending on the stimulus. (wikipedia.org)
  • volume
  • A condition where the volume of the endolymph is greatly enlarged is called endolymphatic hydrops and has been linked to Ménière's disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • Excess pressure accumulation in the endolymph can cause a tetrad of symptoms: (1) fluctuating hearing loss, (2) occasional episodic vertigo (usually a spinning sensation, sometimes violent), (3) tinnitus or ringing in the ears (usually low-tone roaring), and (4) aural fullness (eg, pressure, discomfort, fullness sensation in the ears).

  • Disruption of the endolymph due to jerky movements (like spinning around or driving over bumps while riding in a car) can cause motion sickness. (wikipedia.org)
