Abstract
Posterior canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (PCBPPV) is the most common disease among patients who visited the st. Carollo hospital dizziness center with the head suddenly feeling rolling or rotational dizziness caused by head and body movements. Most patients showed improvements in symptoms after a single treatment. On the other hand, there are more causes requiring multiple treatments. This study examined the factors affecting the canalithiasis repositioning maneuver for symptom recovery of dizziness, which is posterior BPPV. Dizziness patients who visited the dizziness center of PCBPPV were classified. From March 2008 to November 2010, the cure rate of 165 posterior BPPVs patients was investigated. The success rate after the first, second, third, and further treatments was 57.6%, 17.6%, 10.3%, and 14.5%, respectively. The factors affecting treatment of PCBPPVs included traumatic, medical disease, cerebral infarction, small vessel disease, vestbro basilar artery insufficiency (VBI), cerebrovascular disease, brain disease, and vestibuloplasty (P<0.05). Vomiting, nausea, and syncope can be treated easily by considering the factors affecting these treatments. If the related diseases are combined with the treatment of the canalithiasis repositioning maneuver for symptom recovery of dizziness, the results will show an improvement in daily life that is free from painful dizziness.
