Canalith repositioning for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo: a randomized, controlled trial.

Author information

Department of Otolaryngology, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand.


We assessed the efficacy of the canalith repositioning maneuver by comparing it with no treatment in a population of patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). In this randomized, controlled, 6-month efficacy trial, outcomes were measured subjectively by patients' reports of symptom status and objectively by Hallpike testing. During the first month of the study, the treated group experienced significantly better outcomes than did the control group, but this trend was not sustained at 3 and 6 months.
