Abstract Conclusion: Our results show that cervical vestibular-evoked myogenic potential (cVEMP) or ocular VEMP (oVEMP) abnormalities in the recurrent benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) group were significantly higher than those in the non-recurrent BPPV group. Therefore, we can infer that VEMP abnormality is one of risk factors for BPPV recurrence. ...
