Materials and methods: A pressure treatment using Meniett® device was initiated for 53 patients suffering of unilateral or bilateral active Menière’s disease, despite medical treatment and physiotherapy. Results: Retrospective analysis of the data demonstrate i) no complications due to the tympanostomy tube, ii) with a 4 months follow up after the treatment, a total control or reduction of vertigo in respectively 65% and 24.5% of the initially treated patients. Conclusion: The overpressure treatment with Meniett® has been well tolerated. It can be repeated in case of recurrence of the symptoms. It is an interesting alternative for the treatment of Menière disease.
