|Patient||Age||Gender||Inner ear||Size of dehiscence||Presenting symptoms||Hearing loss||Tinnitus||Dix-hallpike||Lowest t-scorea||BMD status|
|1||85||Female||Left||2.0 mm||New onset dizziness with head movement||None||No||Positive-Left||−2.3 F||Osteopenia|
|2||70||Female||Left||1.0 mm||Dizziness and falls||None||No||Negative||N/Ab||Osteoporosis|
|3||57||Female||Left||1.5 mm||10 year history of vertigo with head movement||None||Yes||Negative||−3.4 S||Osteoporosis|
|4||81||Female||Left||1.5 mm||Dizziness and falls||Bilateral with AD > ASc||No||Negative||−2.9 S||Osteoporosis|
|5||72||Female||Left||2.0 mm||Dizziness for one year||None||No||Positive-Left||−3.9 S||Osteoporosis|
*None of the patients had sound-induced (Tullio phenomenon) or valsalva-induced (Hennebert sign) vertigo.
aLowest BMD T-score, taken from F = femur or S = Spine.
bBMD results showed osteoporosis, but T-scores were not available.
cBilateral conductive hearing loss (AD > AS) was detected by Rinnie tuning fork testing at 256 Hz.
