Abstract

This article reviews the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo of the posterior and lateral semicircular canals and summarizes the evidence-based outcome data. The authors discuss this common cause of vertigo, its cause and prevalence across the life span, and efficacy of treatment through both physical repositioning maneuvers and surgery.
