Effect of Epley maneuver versus Semont maneuver on vertigo in post-menopausal women

Emad Eldin Mohamed Abdelatief, Radwa Mohammed Yehia.

Abstract
Background: BPPV is one of the most common causes of dizziness and vertigo that arising from a problem in the inner ear. The frequency of vertigo lasts less than one minute with a symptom of a spinning sensation, vomiting and difficulty of walking when the head is changed to a certain position. This may be as a result of the collection of calcium crystals that has high sensitivity to head positions in one of the semicircular canals. BPPV can be treated by several maneuvers; Epley and Semont are one of them. These maneuvers can correct the position of posterior canal.
Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the effect of Epley and Semont maneuvers on vertigo in Post-menopausal women
Material and methods: Sixty Post-menopausal with unilateral posterior canal BPPV based on Dix-Hall pike test were participated in this study. There ages ranged from 45 to 60 years. They were assigned into two groups; Group A received Epley maneuver, Group B received Semont maneuver.
Outcome measures: Visual vertigo analogue scale (VVAS) for vertigo intensity and Videonystagmography (VNG) for nystagmus duration.
Results: There was no statistically significant difference between both groups in post-treatment measurements of the nystagmus duration with a significant difference in vertigo intensity.
Conclusions: Both maneuvers can be applied to control symptoms of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo with significant reduction in favor to Epley maneuver group.

Key words: Keywords: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, Epley maneuver, Semont maneuver, Visual vertigo analogue scale, Videonystagmography
