Benign Paroxysmal Positioning Vertigo (BPPV) Treatment: Part II - Horizontal Canal (coming soon)
This class will present a thorough explanation with step-by-step instruction and demonstration of the most popular methods for treatment of horizontal canal BPPV (HC-BPPV). Methods will include Appiani, Cassani and barbecue repositioning methods. HC-BPPV is typically seen either through a migration that occurs during PC-BPPV repositioning or self-migration during everyday activities. It is advisable that an HC-BPPV be managed-treated immediately, if it occurs within a CRM session, as the vertigo is more intense than that of PC-BPPV. HC-BPPV may be at time more complicated than PC-BPPV due to a bilateral type response (horizontal canal are mirror images of each other) and the issue of migrainous positional vertigo. A discussion of migrainous positional vertigo (MPV) is important, as this condition is often seen in a similar demographic and may mimic several aspects of HC-BPPV. Therefore, an understanding of its similarities and differences will be helpful to the clinician in managing these patients.
