Clinical Practice Guideline: Ménière’s Disease

This guideline was published in the April 2020 issue of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery.

Clinical Practice Guideline: Ménière’s Disease published in Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery on April 8. This clinical practice guideline (CPG) is intended for all for all health care providers, in any setting, who are likely to encounter, diagnose, treat, and/or monitor patients with suspected Ménière’s disease (MD). The target patient for the CPG is anyone 18 years of age or older with suspected diagnosis of definite or probable MD. The primary purpose of this CPG is to improve the quality of the diagnostic workup and treatment outcomes of MD. To achieve this purpose, the goals of this guideline are to use the best available published scientific and/or clinical evidence to enhance diagnostic accuracy and appropriate therapeutic interventions (medical and surgical) while reducing unindicated diagnostic testing and/or imaging.
