Vulvar Vestibulitis Syndrome

Common Name(s)

Vulvar Vestibulitis Syndrome

Vasovagal syncope (VVS) is an exaggerated tendency toward the common faint caused by a sudden and profound hypotension with or without bradycardia. Several lines of evidence indicate central and peripheral abnormalities of sympathetic function. {4:Newton et al. (2005)} stated that a definitive diagnosis of VVS is made only when a patient has reproduction of symptoms in association with hypotension or bradycardia. The head up tilt (HUT) test is the investigation carried out to induce these hemodynamic changes ({5:Parry and Kenny, 1999}). This disorder may be the same as Streeten-type orthostatic hypotensive disorder ({143850}).
