Two methods of ultrasound application for treatment of Meniere's disease are compared: lateral canal vs round window approach. The experience of 14 years and 560 cases is evaluated. The percentage of failure for both methods is the same, 20%. The round window method is easier, faster, and more pleasant for the patient. Lateral canal approach, on the other hand, has the advantage of a long follow-up which proved its value. Ultrasound as such, however, has proven itself in treatment of Meniere's disease as a valuable contribution in controlling this bothersome illness.
