Background and Objectives : Ageotrophic nystagmus in the horizontal canal BPPV has been explained as a result of cupulolithiasis theory, and has been reported to have the less therapeutic response to conservative rehabilitations than the other type BPPV . Though methods to detach the debris with vibrator have been introduced, the effect has been questioned and it’s not physiologic. Materials and Method : We introduce a new head shaking-forced prolonged position method as a more convenient method, and report typical 2 cases of ageotrophic horizontal canal BPPV managed with it and analyzed results of 25 cases all told. Results and conclusion : The average number of rehabilitation was less than two, and loss of direction changing positional nystagmus could be observed immediately after rehabilitation.
