Over the years, a variety of empirical regimens have evolved using intratympanic gentamicin to treat the vertigo associated with Meniere's disease. Although these regimens have been effective, their application is not without risk. Many of the problems associated with intratympanic medications could be overcome with the use of a sustained release vehicle. This article examines the role of such vehicles in the treatment of Meniere's disease and how sustained release vehicles might impact future treatment for this disabling disease.
