|Benign Paroxysamal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is one of the most common diagnoses among peripheral vestibular disorders. Pathology of this disorder is the presence of otoconia inside the semicircular canal. Posterior canal BPPV is the most common type of BPPV. Nausea and vomiting are the key features for BPPV. Specific maneuver is one of the optimum treatments to promote the recovery among BPPV patients. The effectiveness of these maneuvers has been clearly demonstrated. The best maneuver is the one with highest successfully rate and the lowest recurrent rate. Gan canal repositioning and deep hanging maneuver is one of the latest maneuvers that is able to cure the BPPV problem.|
