Abstract: 

BACKGROUND: BENIGN PAROXYSMAL POSITIONAL VERTIGO (BPPV) IS ONE OF THE COMMON DISEASES IN PATIENTS THAT COMPLAIN OF VERTIGO ESPECIALLY DURING BODY OR HEAD MOVEMENT. THERE ARE SOME ACCEPTABLE PROCEDURES IN THE TREATMENT OF THESE PATIENTS, SUCH AS EPLEY AND SEMONT MANEUVERS. THE AIM OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DETERMINE WHICH PROCEDURE WAS MORE EFFECTIVE IN THE TREATMENT OF BPPV.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: THIS STUDY WAS CONDUCTED AMONG 38 PATIENTS (22 FEMALES, 16 MALES) WITH BPPV, AND BETWEEN THE AGES OF 23 AND 56 YEARS OLD. THE PATIENTS WERE RANDOMLY DIVIDED INTO TWO GROUPS. EPLEY MANEUVER WAS PERFORMED ON THE FIRST GROUP AND THE SEMONT PROCEDURE WAS PERFORMED ON THE SECOND GROUP. THE EFFICACY OF THE TREATMENT WAS EVALUATED WITH THE DIX-HALLPIKE MANEUVER AFTER ONE WEEK. RESULTS: OF THE PATIENTS THAT RECEIVED THE EPLEY MANEUVER, 89% HAD NO VERTIGO AND NYSTAGMUS WITH THE DIX-HALLPIKE TEST, AND IN THE SECOND GROUP THAT RECEIVED THE SEMONT MANEUVER, THESE RESULTS WERE 68%. THE RESULTS SHOWED MORE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE EPLEY MANEUVER IN PATIENTS WITH BPPV.
CONCLUSION: ACCORDING TO THE RESULTS OF OUR STUDY, THE EPLEY MANEUVER IS A MORE EFFECTIVE PROCEDURE IN THE TREATMENT OF BPPV.
