Abstract in Danish

Benign paroksysmal positionel vertigo viser sig ved kraftige rotatoriske svimmelhedsanfald, når patienten bevæger sit hoved i bestemte stillinger. Tilstanden er, som navnet udsiger, benign, men medfører oftest væsentlig morbiditet. Fritflydende otolitter (ørekrystaller)

antages at sedimentere i buegangene ved hovedbevægelser.

Herved påvirkes cupula hydrodynamisk og dette medfører

svimmelhed. Denne oversigtsartikel er baseret på en systematisk gennemgang af litteraturen og beskriver blandt andet velkendte og nyere behandlingsmetoder, som alle er effektive og ufarlige for patienten.
Abstract
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo presents with brief, episodic, positioning-provoked vertigo and characteristic findings on Dix-Hallpike and other positional tests. This article is based on a systematic review of the literature and describes epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis, diagnostic positional tests and treatment using canalith repositioning, liberatory and 360 degrees rotation manoeuvres. Diagnostic pitfalls, mastoid vibration, postmanoeuvre activity restriction and the ideal number of repositioning manoeuvres per treatment session are discussed.
