This is a highly practical reference for diagnosing and managing some of the most common complaints in the otolaryngology patient -- vertigo, disequilibrium, and dizziness. This carefully organized reference begins by presenting descriptions of time-tested examination techniques, laboratory tests, and the imaging studies necessary for an accurate diagnosis. The book then addresses the various diseases causing these complaints, including Meniere's disease, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, labyrinthitis, migraine-induced vestibulopathy, and more, with concise explanations of medical, surgical, and therapeutic treatment options available. An accompanying DVD features high-quality videos of key examination tests, such as ENG, Hallpike positioning, and Epley's maneuver. The videos document the numerous nystagmus patterns caused by various central pathologies and peripheral vestibulopathies, providing an exceptional tool for learning how to recognize eye movements to confirm a diagnosis.
