The need for Class I and II studies on the efficacy of Semont’s liberatory maneuver (SLM) in the treatment of posterior canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (PC-BPPV) motivated the present double-blind randomized trial on the short-term efficacy of SLM. A total of 342 patients with unilateral PC-BPPV were recruited for a multicenter study. Patients(More)
The aim of this study is to verify the hypothesis that free-floating particles could sometimes localize into the distal portion of the non ampullary arm of the posterior semicircular canal (PSC) so that assuming the Dix-Hallpike's positions, the clot could move towards the ampulla eliciting a inhibitory torsional-down beating paroxysmal positional nystagmus(More)
We lately reported the cases of patients complaining positional vertigo whose nystagmic pattern was that of a peripheral torsional vertical positional down beating nystagmus originating from a lithiasis of the non-ampullary arm of the posterior semicircular canal (PSC). We considered this particular pathological picture the apogeotropic variant of PSC(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS The need for class I and II studies on the efficacy of liberatory maneuvers in the treatment of lateral canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (LC-BPPV) motivated the present double-blind randomized trial on the short-term efficacy of the Gufoni liberatory maneuver (GLM). STUDY DESIGN Double-blind randomized controlled trial. (More)
Epidermoid cysts are rare congenital tumors of the central nervous system (CNS), histologically benign and slowgrowing lesions. Their frequency among primitive intracranial tumors is about 1% and they account for 40% of all intracranial epidermoid of the cerebellopontine angle (CPA); there they constitute the third most frequent neoplasm (5%), after(More)
