Answer

A retrospective study by Tirelli et al indicated that patients with recurrent BPPV who undergo repeated CRP have a significantly increased dizziness recovery rate but do not have a significant difference in BPPV recurrence, compared with patients who have undergone an initial treatment with CRP but not repeated procedures.
