BPPV: Diagnosis and Management Research Article

A study done in 2003 showed that over 90% of patients with BPPV can be successfully treated with different manoeuvres, such as Dix-Hallpike, Semont, and Epley. This article gives a great overview of the different manoeuvres as well as other options for the 10% of patients that are not successfully treated. Also included in this study are the initial diagnoses and a great background on vestibular physiology and pathophysiology of BPPV.
