Labyrinthectomy is an effective technique in the surgical treatment of vertigo. We believe that the transmastoid approach is the most direct method of vestibular ablation. This technique provides direct visualization of vestibular neuroepithelium and allows for positive identification of the facial nerve. Vertigo was successfully controlled by this method in thirty-seven (97%) of thirty-eight patients.
