C215 - Canalith Repositioning for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo

Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Neuro-ophthalmology/Neuro-otology
Director(s): Terry Fife MD, FAAN
Description: Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common cause of vertigo. Canalith repositioning procedure is an established effective treatment for BPPV. Faculty will review the mechanisms that underlie the symptoms and the nystagmus of BPPV, how to examine for positional nystagmus and determine from that which ear and which semicircular canal is affected by BPPV, and demonstrate and provide videos of treatment of BPPV with canalith repositioning for each of the common forms of BPPV. Successful treatment of BPPV is both cost-effective and rewarding to the patient and clinician. The over-arching goal of this program is to make practicing neurologists comfortable with successfully performing the canalith repositioning procedure in the office or hospital setting.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with the causes and clinical features of BPPV including the features of the characteristic positional nystagmus of BPPV and how to lateralize to the affected ear and semicircular canal and be comfortable treating the common form of BPPV (posterior canal) using canalith repositioning and be familiar with the treatment for the less common variants of BPPV.
