Vestibular Dysfunction Related to Cochlear Implantation in Adults

Vestibular sedatives can be prescribed to reduce acute onset vertigo after cochlear implantation, e.g., prochlorperazine, diphenhydramine and meclizine. Appropriate repositioning maneuver if BPPV is found. Vestibular rehabilitation is an effective intervention to improve overall balance, especially in cases of vestibular hypofunction.
