Percepción de la vertical visual subjetiva. Medición y utilidad diagnóstica

Rafael PÉREZ-GONZÁLEZ, Silvia GANCEDO-FERNÁNDEZ

Resumen


Introducción y objetivo: La vertical visual subjetiva (VVS) es la posición en la que un sujeto colocaría una línea cuando se le indica que la ajuste a la vertical física real que coincide con el eje gravitacional. Es una exploración que evalúa principalmente los órganos otolíticos. Revisamos en este artículo la utilidad diagnóstica de esta prueba. Método: Para ello se ha realizado una revisión bibliográfica de los autores más significativos. Conclusiones: Su medición es sencilla y no precisa de sofisticados equipos y aunque tiene una alta sensibilidad en los procesos agudos, en los crónicos su utilidad es más discutible. Tampoco permite localizar la región de la vía vestibular afectada por el proceso patológico.
