The records of both stabilometer and subjective visual horizontal (SVH) testing can be used to evaluate vestibular compensation. When results of SVH testing have a strong significant correlation to those of stabilometer testing, clinicians can omit one of two tests from the test battery. To investigate the correlation, results of these two tests of patients with unilateral severe vestibular dysfunction were studied. Twenty-eight patients, 20 men and 8 women, with unilateral severe vestibular dysfunction were enrolled in this study. The correlation between these two tests was considered not significant according to the results. In conclusion, we cannot omit either stabilometer testing or SVH testing for the evaluation of patients with vestibular dysfunction.
