Synopsis: 
We investigated the vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP) findings in benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) patients. Vestibular evoked myogenic potential was performed during the diagnosis, and after the treatment. Our findings showed significantly more abnormal VEMP results in the BPPV group than in the control group subjects.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate the vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP) findings in posterior semicircular canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) patients.

Methods: Twenty patients with posterior semicircular canal BPPV and 20 healthy control subjects were recruited to participate in this study. VEMP was performed at diagnosis and after treatment.
