Brandt-Daroff maneuvers

(brănt′ dăr′ŏf)

A series of exercises for patients with refractory positional vertigo. Patients are repeatedly asked to assume the positions that typically trigger attacks. After multiple attempts, habituation to the vertigo occurs, and the symptoms are relieved. The maneuvers are effective in about 80% of patients.

Brandt-Daroff maneuvers is a sample topic from the Taber's Medical Dictionary.
