Review of the recent literature reveals that there have been no cases reported in which vertigo accompanied by otosclerosis has been successfully treated by stapes mobilization, although Jordan presented one such case in his course on Ménière's disease at the 1957 meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology. Jack mentioned relief of vertigo by stapedectomy, but he did not state that it was accompanied by otosclerosis.
