Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is the most common peripheral vestibular disorder. It can be defined as transient vertigo induced by a rapid head position change, associated with a characteristic paroxysmal positional nystagmus. Canalolithiasis of the posterior semicircular canal is considered the most convincing theory of its pathogenesis and the development of appropriate therapeutic maneuvers resulted in its effective treatment. However, involvement of the horizontal or the anterior… Expand
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo: diagnosis and treatment.
TLDR
Treatment is based on the identification of the affected semicircular canal and performance of liberatory maneuvers or repositioning of free floating particles of otoliths, which varies from 70 to 100%. Expand
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo of the anterior semicircular canal: Atypical clinical findings and possible underlying mechanisms
TLDR
Two atypical cases of ASC benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) are presented and the relevant literature is reviewed and the possible mechanisms responsible for this intriguing variance are discussed. Expand
Diagnosis of Single- or Multiple-Canal Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo according to the Type of Nystagmus
TLDR
The various types of nystagmus are described, according to the canals involved, which are the keypoint to accurate diagnosis of the type of BPPV. Expand
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo secondary to vestibular neuritis
TLDR
BPPV associated with VN differs from idiopathic BPPV in regard to several epidemiological and clinical features, it responds less effectively to treatment and may follow a protracted course, having a tendency for recurrence. Expand
Pathophysiology and Diagnosis of BPPV
TLDR
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common of the peripheral vestibular disorders and is believed to be the leading cause of vertigo worldwide. Expand
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo--a review of 101 cases.
TLDR
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is more frequent in female subjects, in the 6th decade and involves preferably the posterior semicircular canal of the right labyrinth and treatment with repositioning maneuvers has a mean success of 90%. Expand
Evidence-Based Practice: Management of Acute Vertigo
TLDR
BPPV is typically treated successfully by noninvasive and inexpensive particle-repositioning maneuvers, and VN, an acute vestibular syndrome with prolonged and incapacitating vertigo, is managed with medications and Vestibular rehabilitation therapy. Expand
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo – A Review of 101 Cases
TLDR
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is more frequent in female subjects, in the 6th decade and involves preferably the posterior semicircular canal of the right labyrinth and treatment with repositioning maneuvers has a mean success of 90%. Expand
Clinical features of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
TLDR
BPPV is characterized by its prevalence at age 41 to 60 years, in females, with nystagmus and positioning vertigo, involving mostly the posterior canal of the right labyrinth, associated with canalithiasis or idiopathic,associated with Meniere's disease compared to other affections, healing or recovery by means of particle repositioning maneuver, and possible recurrence. Expand
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
TLDR
BPPV remains a challenging field that is constantly evolving in terms of pathophysiology, clinical manifestation, recovery, treatment, and recurrence, with the existence of several and to a large extent unknown contributing factors. Expand

The mechanics of benign paroxysmal vertigo.
TLDR
Division of BPV into two types (fatiguable and nonfatIGuable) will simplify and rationalize the management of this common complaint. Expand
Physical therapy for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
TLDR
Sixty-six patients with the symptoms of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo were treated by challenging them with the precipitating head positions on a repeated and serial basis and one patient whose condition did not respond was found to have a perilymphatic fistula that mimicked BPPV. Expand

The pathophysiology of the positional vertigo of the horizontal canal, diagnosis of its two presentations, and therapeutic possibilities are described. Expand
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo of the horizontal canal: a form of canalolithiasis with variable clinical features.
TLDR
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo of the horizontal semicircular canal (HC-BPPV) is a well-defined syndrome characterized by direction-changing horizontal positional nystagmus, and it is sustained that the clinical findings can be explained by movement of endolymph caused by displacement of otoconia in the semicircULAR canals.

TLDR
The different exercises and repositioning manoeuvres in use are described and their efficacy is examined and a management strategy for BPPV is suggested. Expand
Horizontal canal BPV.
TLDR
Seven patients with a clinical picture consistent with horizontal canal BPV are reported on, finding brief vertigo and horizontal nystagmus precipitated by head movement into or out of one of the lateral positions. Expand
Occurrence of Semicircular Canal Involvement in Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
TLDR
All the BPPV variants shared the same clinical and demographic characteristics and responded equally well to treatment, however, differential diagnosis was necessary to apply the appropriate canalith repositioning procedure. Expand
Horizontal semicircular canal variant of benign positional vertigo
TLDR
The clinical features and results of quantitative eye-movement testing in patients with episodic positional vertigo and nonfatiguing direction-changing horizontal positional nystagmus support a peripheral localization of the lesion. Expand
[Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo of the horizontal semicircular canal].
TLDR
It is proven that BPPV-HC is an uncommon disorder in most of the cases, provocative manoeuver generates bilateral horizontal geotropic changing-direction nystagmus that probably is due to canalitiasis of the horizontal semicircular canal. Expand

TLDR
The benign paroxysmal vertigo is defined and the ethiopathogeny of the syndrome is recalled and the different types of BPV and their treatment by "liberatory maneuvers" are described. Expand
