Objective: To evaluate the indications and clinical outcomes (audiologic and vestibular) in patients with Ménière's syndrome who have undergone cochlear implantation.

Study design: This is a retrospective review of patients at a large tertiary academic medical centre.

Main outcome measures: Pre- and Postoperative audiometric scores (monosyllable words/phonemes, Central Institute for the Deaf (CID) sentences, Hearing in Noise Test (HINT) in quite/noise (+10 db)), pre- and postoperative vestibular symptoms (number of vestibular attacks, aural fullness, tinnitus).

Conclusions: Patients with advanced binaural involvement with Ménière's Disease may present a challenge to conventional criteria for cochlear implant candidacy because of fluctuating symptoms. We observed significant benefit over baseline in a consecutive series of patients with Ménière's syndrome who progressed to bilateral, severe-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss and underwent cochlear implantation. Further, previous vestibular surgery, including labyrinthectomy, does not contraindicate cochlear implantation.
