Vertigo is the feeling that everything around is moving or spinning and is usually caused by a problem with the balance mechanisms in the inner ear. It can also be caused by problems in certain parts of the brain or vision disorders. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is one of the most common causes of vertigo causing brief episodes of mild to intense dizziness. BPPV is usually triggered by specific changes in the position of the head, when tipping the head up or down, when lying down, or when turning over or sitting up in bed.
This book is a comprehensive guide to BPPV. Beginning with an introduction to anatomy, physiology and differential diagnosis, the following sections discuss the different types of BPPV – posterior, horizontal, anterior, subclinical, multicanal, secondary, migraine-associated and more.
The final chapters examine medical and surgical management techniques and the book concludes with an atlas of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for BPPV.
The book is authored by recognised experts from Italy.
