 VASCULAR SURGERY OF HISTORY

Vertigo. Pars secunda

Argenteri A., Curci R.

Department of Vascular Surgery University of Pavia, Pavia

After the excur­sus ­into the ­world of ver­ti­go in the ­pars pri­ma in con­tact ­with the 17th and 18th cen­tu­ries, the fig­ure of P. Menière (1799-1862), the 19th-cen­tu­ry schol­ar and otorh­i­nol­o­gist. His ­life and pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment con­trast ­with the ­scope of his intui­tion on ver­ti­go; ­this is ­borne out by his pro­fes­sion­al and sci­en­tif­ic lean­ing ­towards ear pathol­o­gy dic­tat­ed, in old­er age, by ­events and neces­sity. His obser­va­tions ­altered the ­deep-root­ed con­vic­tion ­that a cere­bral ­lesion was the under­ly­ing ­cause of ver­ti­go, ­instead shift­ing the etiop­a­thog­e­net­ic ­vision ­towards ­lesions of the ­inner ear. He ­opened the way to the ­future lab­y­rin­thol­o­gy, lead­ing to the dif­fe­ren­ti­a­tion ­between cen­tral and periph­er­al ­forms of ver­ti­go.
