What is Endolymphatic Sac Decompression?

Endolymphatic sac decompression is a surgery used to preserve the hydrostatic pressure and endolymph homeostasis in the internal ear in patients with Meniere's disease.

This process can reverse the damage to the ear while maintaining the balance of your hearing level.

Endolymphatic Sac Decompression is Performed in:

  • Patients experiencing vertigo attacks associated with Meniere's disease are the most appropriate for endolymphatic sac decompression.
  • It might be performed to stop the progression of hearing loss in some patients.

The Procedure of Endolymphatic Sac Decompression:

The process of endolymphatic sac decompression can be performed under general anesthesia. Our doctor will make an incision behind the ear and open the mastoid bone.

The bone will be removed to reveal the endolymphatic sac. A laser is used to make a hole in the sac's outer layer, and the bone is removed from the sac. The incision is closed.

Approximately the procedure takes up to 90 minutes to perform. You will be moved to a recovery room and monitored until you wake up. You will be discharged an hour after the procedure if everything is fine.

What are the Risks of Endolymphatic Sac Decompression?

During an endolymphatic sac decompression surgery, complications can arise, which includes:

  • Hearing loss – which may worsen in some cases.
  • Vertigo – Vertigo attacks can worsen or may not be improved.
  • Tinnitus – In some rare cases, you may experience some ringing in the ear after surgery.
  • Facial nerve injury: It is sporadic to have a facial nerve injury. It can occur after any surgery in the ear.
  • Leaking spinal fluid: It can lead to meningitis, but this is very rare.

What can you Expect after an Endolymphatic Sac Decompression?

You may experience some pain after surgery. If the prescribed medications are not effective in relieving the pain, talk to the doctor.

Most patients return to work the day after the surgery. Your hearing will be gradually improved for a few weeks, and you will eventually return to everyday life.
