Synopsis:

[Vertigo and disequilibrium] work-up is a daunting and intimidating task....This book successfully addresses common misunderstandings and lays out a systematic approach....This makes the task of opening the "black box" that is the vestibular system appear less daunting and puts the reader at ease. -- American Journal of Neuroradiology

...I really like that this book contains information relevant to many different professions working with the vestibular system and the dizzy patient....this book offers a good foundation for someone who is just starting to work with vestibular patients. -- Canadian Audiologist

This updated edition provides a comprehensive basis for understanding, identifying, and treating the underlying multifactorial etiologies of dizziness and imbalance. Vertigo is a common malady for which patients seek treatment, yet the vestibular system and its associated disorders are often misunderstood. This book effectively demystifies this topic, with clinical pearls and knowledge from foremost experts in the field.

The first six chapters cover procuring a thorough patient history, examination techniques, computerized testing, radiological studies, surgical anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system, and laboratory testing. Subsequent chapters concisely detail the diagnosis and treatment of pathologies such as Meniere's disease, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, labyrithinitis, superior semicircular canal dehisence syndrome, and unilateral peripheral vestibulopathy.

Key Features

  • Covers the full age continuum - from congenital and pediatric vestibular disorders - to balance conditions associated with aging
  • Highlights the most common pathologies such as BPPV, as well as fairly rare diseases like Mal de Debarquement syndrome and perilymph fistulas
  • Discusses the impact of alcohol, migraines, and allergies on the vestibular system and the intrinsic roles they play in causing dizziness
  • New insights on medications, rehabilitation, and the use of implantable vestibular devices
  • Expanded video library provides guidance on testing modalities, visual disturbances, nystagmus patterns, and specific disorders

Physicians who read this authoritative guide will gain knowledge that is essential for optimal management of patients with vertigo and disequilibrium. It is an invaluable resource for otolaryngologists, as well as neurologists, physical therapists, internists, geriatricians, family practitioners, audiologists, and even cardiologists.

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.

Features:

  • A full review of anatomy and physiology provides the essential framework for the clinical examination and comprehension of disease processes
  • Broad discussion of the multifactorial etiologies of dizziness provides a conceptual basis for diagnosis and determining best course of treatment
  • A valuable appendix with sample questions for taking a thorough patient history aids the assessment of the severity of symptoms

Vertigo and Disequilibrium: A Practical Guide to Diagnosis and Managementis an essential resource for all otolaryngologists, neurologists, vestibular therapists, residents, and physicians treating patients with dizziness.
