Roberts RA, Rivas A, Makowiec KF. Anterior Canal benign paroxysmal positional Vertigo following surgical Management of superior canal dehiscence. American journal of otolaryngology. 39(39). 796-799. PMID: 30224218 [PubMed]
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is a common post-surgical finding in patients managed for superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SSCD). The posterior semicircular canal has been reported as the involved canal in the majority of cases of post-surgical BPPV, with only two cases reported of lateral canal involvement. The objective of this report is to present a case in which an anterior semicircular canal BPPV response was identified in a patient following surgical management for SSCD.
