Clinical Practice Guideline: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (Update)

This update of a 2008 guideline from the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery Foundation provides evidence-based recommendations to benign paroxysmal positional vertigo by improving the accurate and efficient diagnosis of BPPV, reducing the inappropriate use of vestibular suppressant medications, decreasing the inappropriate Use of ancillary testing such as radiographic imaging, and increasing the use of appropriate therapeutic repositioning maneuvers.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo in the Acute Hospital Setting: Review of a Novel Means for Examination and Intervention

This case study found that evidence-based practice guidelines as well as application of a biophysical scientific knowledge base can be applied into the acute care vestibular rehabilitation examination using primarily different configurations of a hospital bed only.

Clinical Practice Guideline: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (Update) Executive Summary

This article summarizes the rationale, purpose, and key action statements of the updated Clinical Practice Guideline: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (Update), and 14 recommendations developed emphasize diagnostic accuracy and efficiency.

[Diagnosis and treatment of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo in common clinical practice].

Lack of effective and timely diagnosis of BPPV reflects physicians' poor awareness that this condition is the most common cause of vestibular vertigo and it is necessary to raise awareness of B PPV among of physicians and to set up specialized centers for the management of patients with dizziness.

Continuing lack of the diagnosis of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo in a tertiary care emergency department

This study showed that despite guidelines recommending the use of bedside manoeuvres for the diagnosis and the treatment of BPPV, very few patients get recommended assessment and treatment.

Management of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) in the emergency department

Diagnostic strategies and physical manoeuvres are described in this narrative review of BPPV, which has been proven to be effective in randomised controlled trials and carries minimal risks.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo: comparison of two recent international guidelines

This study reviews two recent guidelines regarding the evaluation and treatment of BPPV and concludes that the AAO-HNS's guidelines were more comprehensive and of better quality than the AAN's.

Delayed diagnosis and treatment of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo associated with current practice

It is demonstrated that despite the significant prevalence of BPPV, delays in diagnosis and treatment frequently occur, which have both cost and quality-of-life impacts on both patients and their caregivers.

[Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo: who can diagnose it, how should it be treated and where?].

The authors recommend that patients with suspected horizontal or anterior canal BPPV should be immediately examined by a neurologist and if no other neurological abnormality is found a referral to a specialized dizziness clinic should follow.

A retrospective analysis of patients tested at the Johns Hopkins Otological Vestibular Laboratory found coexisting or associated disorders which included Meniere's disease, head trauma, prior ear surgery, audiograms, questionnaires, and hospital charts was performed.

Benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo in multiple sclerosis: diagnosis, pathophysiology and therapeutic techniques

Empiric treatments with corticosteroids and/or vestibular suppressants should not be employed until all MS patients undergo a careful bedside examination, which includes diagnostic positional and, if indicated, particle repositioning maneuvers.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo among Elderly Patients in Primary Health Care

Two of 5 of the patients with ICD-10 diagnosis R42 (dizziness and giddiness) had BPPV, which is probably an underestimated cause of dizziness/vertigo among elderly patients in primary health care.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo: Current Status of Medical Management

Is posttraumatic benign paroxysmal positional vertigo different from the idiopathic form?

The nature and severity of the traumas causing t-BPPV are diverse, ranging from minor head injuries to more severe head and neck trauma with brief loss of consciousness, and it appears that t- BPPV is more difficult to treat than i-BBPV, and also has a greater tendency to recur.

Diagnostic problems in patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo

Analysis of the reviewed data in 95 patients showed that one third of the patients described the vertigo in a rather atypical way, while the further testing revealed a typical BPPV, so that in some patients more than one examination was necessary to come to a reliable diagnosis.

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is a potentially curable cause for dizziness in older people and is frequently referred directly to Falls units, who will be seeing increasing numbers of patients with dizziness.

Initial evaluation of vertigo.

It is determined that a patient has vertigo and whether the patient has a peripheral or central cause of vertigo, which requires further work-up with selected laboratory and radiologic studies such as magnetic resonance imaging.
