An aural myiasis case in a 54-year-old male farmer in Korea. (1/439)

A 54-year-old male farmer residing in Chunchon, Korea, complaining of blood tinged discharge and tinnitus in the left ear for two days, was examined in August 16, 1996. Otoscopic examination revealed live maggots from the ear canal. The patient did not complain of any symptoms after removal of maggots. Five maggots recovered were identified as the third stage larvae of Lucilia sericata (Diptera: Calliphoridae). This is the first record of aural myiasis in Korea.  (+info)

Isolated metastases of adenocarcinoma in the bilateral internal auditory meatuses mimicking neurofibromatosis type 2--case report. (2/439)

A 56-year-old male with a history of lung cancer presented with isolated metastases of adenocarcinoma in the bilateral internal auditory meatuses (IAMs), mimicking the bilateral acoustic schwannomas of neurofibromatosis type 2, and manifesting as rapidly worsening tinnitus and bilateral hearing loss. Magnetic resonance imaging showed small tumors in both IAMs with no sign of leptomeningeal metastasis. The preoperative diagnosis was neurofibromatosis type 2. Both tumors were removed and the histological diagnoses were adenocarcinoma. Neuroimaging differentiation of a solitary metastatic IAM tumor from a benign tumor is difficult, although rapidly progressive eighth cranial nerve dysfunction suggests a malignant process. Metastases should be considered as a rare diagnostic possibility in a patient with small tumors in both IAMs.  (+info)

Thalamocortical dysrhythmia: A neurological and neuropsychiatric syndrome characterized by magnetoencephalography. (3/439)

Spontaneous magnetoencephalographic activity was recorded in awake, healthy human controls and in patients suffering from neurogenic pain, tinnitus, Parkinson's disease, or depression. Compared with controls, patients showed increased low-frequency theta rhythmicity, in conjunction with a widespread and marked increase of coherence among high- and low-frequency oscillations. These data indicate the presence of a thalamocortical dysrhythmia, which we propose is responsible for all the above mentioned conditions. This coherent theta activity, the result of a resonant interaction between thalamus and cortex, is due to the generation of low-threshold calcium spike bursts by thalamic cells. The presence of these bursts is directly related to thalamic cell hyperpolarization, brought about by either excess inhibition or disfacilitation. The emergence of positive clinical symptoms is viewed as resulting from ectopic gamma-band activation, which we refer to as the "edge effect." This effect is observable as increased coherence between low- and high-frequency oscillations, probably resulting from inhibitory asymmetry between high- and low-frequency thalamocortical modules at the cortical level.  (+info)

Lateralized tinnitus studied with functional magnetic resonance imaging: abnormal inferior colliculus activation. (4/439)

Tinnitus, the perception of sound in the absence of external stimuli, is a common and often disturbing symptom that is not understood physiologically. This paper presents an approach for using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate the physiology of tinnitus and demonstrates that the approach is effective in revealing tinnitus-related abnormalities in brain function. Our approach as applied here included 1) using a masking noise stimulus to change tinnitus loudness and examining the inferior colliculus (IC) for corresponding changes in activity, 2) separately considering subpopulations with particular tinnitus characteristics, in this case tinnitus lateralized to one ear, 3) controlling for intersubject differences in hearing loss by considering only subjects with normal or near-normal audiograms, and 4) tailoring the experimental design to the characteristics of the tinnitus subpopulation under study. For lateralized tinnitus subjects, we hypothesized that sound-evoked activation would be abnormally asymmetric because of the asymmetry of the tinnitus percept. This was tested using two reference groups for comparison: nontinnitus subjects and nonlateralized tinnitus subjects. Binaural noise produced abnormally asymmetric IC activation in every lateralized tinnitus subject (n = 4). In reference subjects (n = 9), activation (i.e., percent change in image signal) in the right versus left IC did not differ significantly. Compared with reference subjects, lateralized tinnitus subjects showed abnormally low percent signal change in the IC contralateral, but not ipsilateral, to the tinnitus percept. Consequently, activation asymmetry (i.e., the ratio of percent signal change in the IC ipsilateral versus contralateral to the tinnitus percept) was significantly greater in lateralized tinnitus subjects as compared with reference subjects. Monaural noise also produced abnormally asymmetric IC activation in lateralized tinnitus subjects. Two possible models are presented to explain why IC activation was abnormally low contralateral to the tinnitus percept in lateralized tinnitus subjects. Both assume that the percept is associated with abnormally high ("tinnitus-related") neural activity in the contralateral IC. Additionally, they assume that either 1) additional activity evoked by sound was limited by saturation or 2) sound stimulation reduced the level of tinnitus-related activity as it reduced the loudness of (i.e., masked) the tinnitus percept. In summary, this work demonstrates that fMRI can provide objective measures of lateralized tinnitus and tinnitus-related activation can be interpreted at a neural level.  (+info)

A comparison of betahistine hydrochloride with placebo for vertebral-basilar insufficiency: a double-blind study. (5/439)

To test the effectiveness of betahistine HC1 in reducing the frequency of transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) caused by vertebral-basilar artery insufficiency, we randomly assigned 26 patients with a typical history of the condition to a placebo-drug or a drug-placebo sequence, each sequence lasting two months. During the study, the frequency of TIAs did not differ significantly between the placebo and the drug groups. Subjective responses indicated some value for betahistine as a palliative agent.  (+info)

Effectiveness of Ginkgo biloba in treating tinnitus: double blind, placebo controlled trial. (6/439)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether Ginkgo biloba is effective in treating tinnitus. DESIGN: Double blind, placebo controlled trial using postal questionnaires. PARTICIPANTS: 1121 healthy people aged between 18 and 70 years with tinnitus that was comparatively stable; 978 participants were matched (489 pairs). INTERVENTION: 12 weeks' treatment with either 50 mg Ginkgo biloba extract LI 1370 three times daily or placebo. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Participants' assessment of tinnitus before, during, and after treatment. Questionnaires included items assessing perception of how loud and how troublesome tinnitus was. Changes in loudness were rated on a six point scale. Changes in how troublesome were rated on a five point scale. RESULTS: There were no significant differences in primary or secondary outcome measures between the groups. 34 of 360 participants receiving active treatment reported that their tinnitus was less troublesome after 12 weeks of treatment compared with 35 of 360 participants who took placebo. CONCLUSIONS: 50 mg Ginkgo biloba extract LI 1370 given 3 times daily for 12 weeks is no more effective than placebo in treating tinnitus.  (+info)

Ototoxicity associated with use of nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors: a report of 3 possible cases and review of the literature. (7/439)

Although a variety of adverse effects have been attributed to treatment with nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) for human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection, only 5 cases of ototoxicity have been reported in the literature. We describe 3 additional cases of possible NRTI-associated ototoxicity in HIV-1-infected patients, all of whom were aged >45 years, had a history of noise-induced hearing loss, and reported tinnitus and deterioration in hearing in the setting of antiretroviral therapy. Reductions in mitochondrial DNA content induced by NRTIs, as well as mitochondrial DNA mutations associated with aging and HIV-1 infection, all may contribute to auditory dysfunction in older patients with HIV-1 infection. Prospective studies are necessary to determine the incidence of tinnitus and hearing loss among HIV-1-infected patients and their relationship to the use of NRTIs.  (+info)

Symptomatic unruptured capillary telangiectasia of the brain stem: report of three cases and review of the literature. (8/439)

Three young patients with transient or intermittent focal neurological signs suggesting brain stem involvement are described, in whom high field MRI showed focal areas of hyperintensity in T2 weighted spin echo images, hypointensity in T2* weighted gradient echo images, and enhancement in postcontrast T1 weighted images consistent with unruptured capillary telangiectasia of the brain stem. The first patient was a 28 year old woman who complained of recurrent left ear tinnitus, exacerbated during the menstrual period; MRI demonstrated that the vascular anomaly involved the left acoustic pathway. The second patient was a 30 year old woman who had three episodes of paroxysmal left lip movement 4 weeks after child delivery; MRI showed capillary telangiectasia in the right corticonuclear pathway. The third patient, a 36 year old man, had a transient right Bell's palsy; MRI disclosed two circumscribed areas consistent with capillary telangiectasia in the left corticospinal tract and medial longitudinal fasciculus. Steroid receptors in the telangiectatic vessels walls might account for the recurrent and transient course seen in our two female patients. Awareness of the MRI features of capillary telangiectasia may help in defining the real incidence, clinical correlation, and the risk of haemorrhagic complications of these vascular malformations.  (+info)

The need for validated measures enabling clinicians to classify tinnitus patients according to the severity of tinnitus and screen the progress of therapies in our country led us to the translation into Polish and the validation of two tinnitus questionnaires, namely the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) and the Tinnitus Functional Index (TFI). Design: The original English version of questionnaires were translated into Polish and translated back to English by three independent translators. These versions were then finalized by the authors into a Polish THI (THI-Pl) and a Polish TFI (TFI-Pl). Participants from three laryngological centers in Poland answered anonymously the THI-Pl (N=98) and the TFI-Pl (N=108) in addition to the Polish versions of the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) as a measure of self-perceived level of depression, and the Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS) to assess self-perceived quality of life. Both were used to determine discriminant validity. Two Visual
This study aims to examine the availability of subscales in the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) originally proposed by Newman and the possibility of other useful subscales. We also examine whether each item of the THI could be used to better understand the status of patients with tinnitus. This study included 1332 patients who answered the THI on their first visit. Confirmatory factor analysis was conducted to the 25 items of the THI to confirm the usefulness of the emotional, functional, and catastrophic subscales. Exploratory factor analysis was performed to discover the availability of other suitable subscales in addition to the proposed subscales. The proportion of patients who chose

Purpose: Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies have demonstrated the disruptions of multiple brain networks in tinnitus patients. Nonetheless, several studies found no differences in network processing between tinnitus patients and healthy controls. Its neural bases are poorly understood. To identify aberrant brain network architecture involved in chronic tinnitus, we compared the resting-state fMRI patterns of tinnitus patients and healthy controls.Materials and Methods: Chronic tinnitus patients (n=24) with normal hearing thresholds and age-, sex-, education- and hearing threshold-matched healthy controls (n=22) participated in the current study and underwent the resting-state fMRI scanning. We used degree centrality to investigate functional connectivity strength of the whole-brain network and Granger causality to analyze effective connectivity in order to explore directional aspects involved in tinnitus.Results: Compared to healthy controls, we found significantly

Introduction: Tinnitus is a common otologic symptom that can seriously affect a patients quality of life. The purpose of the present study was to translate and validate the Iowa Tinnitus Handicap Questionnaire (THQ) into the Persian language, and to make it applicable as a tool for determining the effects of tinnitus on a patients life. Materials and Methods: The main version of the THQ was translated into the Persian language. The agreed Persian version was administered to 150 tinnitus patients. The validity of the Persian THQ was evaluated and internal reliability was confirmed using Cronbachs α-coefficient. Finally, the effect of independent variables such as age, mean patient threshold, gender, and duration of tinnitus were considered in order to determine the psychometric properties of tinnitus. Results: After an exact translation process, the Persian THQ was found to exhibit face validity. In terms of content validity, the Content Validity Ratio (CVR) reached 100% in all but two questions.

Evidence for clinical impact of hearing aid provision in the management of tinnitus was examined. In study 1, tinnitus handicap was compared amongst two groups of chronic tinnitus patients; those opting for hearing aids (n=42) and age-matched controls who were not (n=14). A small statistically significant reduction in tinnitus handicap as measured by the Tinnitus Handicap Questionnaire was observed in the hearing aid group six months post-fitting compared to controls. However this was not clinically significant. Given the lack of evidence for strong clinical benefit, three further investigations were conducted to identify objective neurophysiological markers associated with the presence of tinnitus. These used baseline fMRI data (i.e. prior to any hearing aid provision) derived from the same age and hearing-matched groups (chronic tinnitus, n=12 and no tinnitus controls, n=11). Independent Component Analysis, region of interest analysis and Patels conditional dependence measures were used to ...
Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT) was developed by Pawel Jastreboff, Ph.D. and is based on his neuophysiological model of tinnitus. This method of treatment requires two components - directive counseling and sound therapy. Directive counseling focuses on education about tinnitus/hyperacusis and the interactions with other systems in the body. Sound therapy is used to help the brain get used to the sound of the tinnitus while decreasing the contrast between the tinnitus and a silent environment. This may include environmental sound enrichment, the use of ear level sound generators (SG), the use of hearing aids (HA), or the use of combination instruments (SG + HA in one unit). The exact treatment is based on the initial diagnostic evaluation, patients preference, and lifestyle demands. The goal is to achieve habituation of the tinnitus. Habituation means the tinnitus is no longer perceivable unless the patient intentionally focuses on it. Even when it is perceivable it is no longer bothersome. ...

CONCLUSION. There are multiple types of tinnitus. Objective tinnitus is one type where a real sound of various sorts can be perceived. Subjective tinnitus is a condition where a person experiences a continuous ringing or sound in the ear in the absence of an external stimulus. It appears that all forms of subjective tinnitus begin with issues that involve the cochlea in one form or another. Either way, subjective tinnitus is generally considered to be idiopathic and difficult to treat. Given there are numerous causes of tinnitus, spanning external somatic causes (dental, behavioral, and neurophysiological), it is critical that all these factors be considered in the development of an effective treatment plan. It would be beneficial for these various professions to form support groups where tinnitus symptomology may be shared, and a group diagnosis and treatment plan be made.. 12. REFERENCES.

Tinnitus is a common condition characterized by the perception or sensation of sound even though there is no identifiable external source for the sound. Tinnitus is often referred to as a ringing in the ears. However, the sounds associated with tinnitus have also been described as hissing, chirping, crickets, whooshing, or roaring sounds, amongst others, that can affect one or both ears. Tinnitus is generally broken down into two types: subjective and objective. Subjective tinnitus is very common and is defined as a sound that is audible only to the person with tinnitus. Subjective tinnitus is a purely electrochemical phenomenon and cannot be heard by an outside observer no matter how hard they try. Objective tinnitus, which is far less common, is defined as a sound that arises from an objective source, such as mechanical defect or a specific sound source, and can be heard by an outside observer under favorable conditions. The sounds from objective tinnitus occur somewhere within the body ...
As an initial test of our treatment, we first conducted a small pilot study to see if there were measurable benefits within 3 to 6 months of using this therapy. While we did not inform participants of whether they would receive a treatment or unaltered music, every participant in fact received a treatment. Participants reported a drop in scores on the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) within 3 months of using their personalized sound therapy for about 2 hours a day. THI is a psychometrically robust and validated questionnaire that assesses the impact of tinnitus on daily living and the degree of distress suffered by the tinnitus patient. Furthermore, we saw increased benefits after 6 months of treatment use (Figure 1). This data suggested that our treatment may be engaging brain plasticity in a positive manner, thereby gradually reducing tinnitus over time. Armed with this information, we designed a more rigorous trial that is very uncommon among research in tinnitus therapies. ...
Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of any external stimulus. Oxidative stress is possibly involved in its pathogenesis and a variety of antioxidant compounds have been studied as potential treatment approaches. The objective of the present study was to assess the effects of antioxidant supplementation in tinnitus patients. This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Patients (N = 70) were randomly allocated to antioxidant supplementation (N = 35) or to placebo (N = 35) for a total of 3 months. Demographic, anthropometric, clinical, and nutritional data were collected. Serum total antioxidant capacity (TAC), oxidized LDL (oxLDL), and superoxide dismutase (SOD), tinnitus loudness, frequency, and minimum masking level (MML), and scores in Tinnitus Handicap Inventory questionnaire (THI), Tinnitus Functional Index (TFI), and Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) were evaluated at baseline and follow-up. Tinnitus loudness and MML significantly decreased from baseline to post
Chronic tinnitus can result in significant psychological suffering and reduce quality of life. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has been shown to be effective in decreasing the impairment caused by tinnitus. One recent way delivering CBT is an internet-based self-help intervention. Internet interventions for patients with chronic tinnitus, developed by Swedish scientists, showed promising results (Andersson et al., 2002; Kaldo et al., 2007; Kaldo et al., 2008). The main purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of this internet-based self-help training for chronic tinnitus with a traditional well-established CBT group treatment and with a discussion forum group in a randomized controlled trial. Secondary goals are a process evaluation of both treatments, the identification of predictors of treatment success, an estimation of the cost-effectiveness of each treatment and the validation of the Tinnitus Cognitions Questionnaire (T-Cog; Hiller & Haerkötter, 2005 ...
Chronic tinnitus is a highly prevalent and often incapacitating condition frequently associated with sensorineural hearing loss. While its etiology remains incompletely understood there is a growing awareness of genetic factors that predispose to, or aggravate chronic tinnitus. Candidate genes for the disorder include KCNE1, a potassium channel subunit gene that has been implicated in maturation defects of central vestibular neurons, in Menières disease, and in noise-induced hearing loss. 201 Caucasian outpatients with a diagnosis of chronic tinnitus were systematically screened for mutations in the KCNE1 open reading frame and in the adjacent sequence by direct sequencing. Allele frequencies were determined for 46 known variants, plus two novel KCNE1 mutations. These comprised one missense substitution (V47I) in the highly conserved region encoding the KCNE1 transmembrane domain, and one rare variant in the genes 3UTR. When genotypes were grouped assuming dominance of the minor alleles, no
Based on the former studies, there is evidence of tinnitus being associated with performance on cognitive ability tests (for example Andersson et al. 2009, Hallam et al. 2004). The topic of my bachelor thesis was to unravel how depression, stress and anxiety connected with tinnitus symptoms are related to cognitive abilities such as verbal fluency, inhibition ability and working memory capacity. In order to fill an existing gap of knowledge, the relationship of different severity of stress caused by tinnitus symptoms as measured with Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) and cognitive abilities and depression and anxiety symptoms was emphasized.. The experiment group was divided into two subgroups, those with lower and higher level of perceived tinnitus severity and the differences in test scores between groups were investigated with one-way analysis of variance. As a result, significant differences between the two tinnitus patient groups were found in the level of performance in inhibition task ...

The physiopathological mechanism underlying the tinnitus phenomenon is still the subject of an ongoing debate. Since oscillatory EEG activity is increasingly recognized as a fundamental hallmark of cortical integrative functions, this study investigates deviations from the norm of different resting EEG parameters in patients suffering from chronic tinnitus. Spectral parameters of resting EEG of male tinnitus patients (n = 8, mean age 54 years) were compared to those of age-matched healthy males (n = 15, mean age 58.8 years). On average, the patient group exhibited higher spectral power over the frequency range of 2-100 Hz. Using LORETA source analysis, the generators of delta, theta, alpha and beta power increases were localized dominantly to left auditory (Brodmann Areas (BA) 41,42, 22), temporo-parietal, insular posterior, cingulate anterior and parahippocampal cortical areas. Tinnitus patients show a deviation from the norm of different resting EEG parameters, characterized by an overproduction of

Cerebral (18) F-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) has shown altered auditory pathway activity in tinnitus. However, the corresponding studies involved only small samples and analyses were restricted to the auditory cortex in most studies. Evidence is growing that also limbic, frontal, and parietal areas are involved in the pathophysiology of chronic tinnitus. These regions are considered to mediate perceptual, attentional, and emotional processes. Thus, the aim of the present study was the systematic evaluation of metabolic brain activity in a large sample of tinnitus patients. Ninety one patients with chronic tinnitus underwent FDG-PET. The effects of tinnitus severity (assessed by a tinnitus questionnaire score), duration and laterality were evaluated with statistical parametric mapping (SPM) in whole brain analyses. In addition, region of interest analyses were performed for primary auditory areas. Tinnitus duration correlated positively with brain metabolism in right ...
Objective This study aims to identify gender-specific risk factors associated with the presence of bothersome tinnitus (compared with non-bothersome tinnitus), including sociodemographic and lifestyle factors, tinnitus-associated phenomena (hearing loss, traumatic experiences, sleep disturbances), and physical as well as mental comorbidities. Methods We conducted a cross-sectional study using survey data from the Swedish LifeGene cohort containing information on self-reported tinnitus (N = 7615). We (1) analyzed risk factor and comorbidity frequencies, (2) computed multivariate logistic regression models to identify predictors of bothersome tinnitus within both genders, and (3) moderated logistic regression models to compare effects between genders. Results (1) The majority of factors that differed in frequencies between bothersome and non-bothersome tinnitus were equal for both genders. Women with bothersome tinnitus specifically reported higher rates of cardiovascular disease, thyroid disease, ...

Results: The validity test demonstrated a significant correlation in the emotional and the catastrophic scale whilst there was no significant correlation in the functional scale for item F2 and particularly for item F15. Nevertheless, the validity test on the functional scale showed a ...
Tinnitus most commonly begins with alterations of input from the ear resulting from cochlear trauma or overstimulation of the ear. Because the cochlear nucleus is the first processing center in the brain receiving cochlear input, it is the first brainstem station to adjust to this modified input from the cochlea. Research published over the last 30 years demonstrates changes in neural circuitry and activity in the cochlear nucleus that are associated with and may be the origin of the signals that give rise to tinnitus percepts at the cortical level. This chapter summarizes what is known about these disturbances and their relationships to tinnitus. It also summarizes the mechanisms that trigger tinnitus-related disturbances and the anatomical, chemical, neurophysiological, and biophysical defects that underlie them. It concludes by highlighting some major controversies that research findings have generated and discussing the clinical implications the findings have for the future treatment of tinnitus.
Tinnitus can be dued to many various things, such as ear infection, build up of wax in the ear, damage to the ear by loud sounds, medication as well as anxiety. In the beginning it is actually important figure out, exactly what the cause is. Ear damage by loud sounds and music is definitely among the most common factors, why individuals develop ringing sound in the ear..

Objective: The purpose of the study was to investigate future thinking in a group of tinnitus patients. It was predicted that participants in the tinnitus group would report fewer positive future events. Methods: A cross-sectional design was used. Two groups of participants completed the test session: tinnitus patients (n=20) and healthy controls (n=20) without tinnitus. Participants completed measures of anticipation of future positive and negative experiences, anxiety and depression. In addition, participants with tinnitus completed a test of tinnitus annoyance. Results: Tinnitus participants generated a greater number of negative future events compared to the controls. There was no difference between the groups on positive future events or on self-reported anxiety, but the tinnitus group scored higher on a depression measure. Controlling for depression scores removed the group difference. Conclusions: While the groups differed on future thinking, the difference concerned negative events, ...

Initial symptoms were reported and informally scored for impingement on a 10-point scale by the patient. The symptoms started with are a minor sore throat (2/10) and moderate aural fullness (6/10) in the right ear upon awakening in the morning. Within two days, a mild to severe, dramatically sloping, ultra-high frequency hearing loss with tinnitus in the right ear was recorded (Fig. 1), which was accompanied by the onset of loud tinnitus 24/7 with sound sensitivity (8/10). The tinnitus was initially measured at 55 dB at 9,000 Hz in the right ear, and at 20 dB at 8,000 Hz in the left ear (Note: The patient only complains of tinnitus and sound sensitivity in the right ear; tests of the left ear are used to compare the two ears).. At two weeks, tinnitus at 8,000 Hz is measured at 60 dB in the right ear and balanced to 55 dB in the left. The ULL measurements between 250 Hz and 16,000 Hz confirmed the presence of hyperacusis. Evidence of asymmetry showed the right ear is more sensitive (by 10-15 dB) ...
Background: chronic tinnitus is a disabling, almost untreatable, condition usually accompanied by psychiatric distress. In patients with complex neuropsychiatric diseases as chronic pain, with whom tinnitus shares pathophysiological similarities, placebo effects may be pronounced. Moreover, it may be difficult to distinguish actual rTMS-induced clinical benefits beyond placebo effects in neuropsychiatric patients. Methods: 16 patients with chronic tinnitus underwent a randomized, double-blind, cross-over, placebo controlled trial of 1 Hz rTMS (120% of motor threshold; 1200 stimuli/day for 5 days) of the left temporoparietal region. Patients were screened for psychiatric comorbidity; additionally, anxiety and depression were monitored throughout the study. Moreover, an original placebo rTMS procedure produced the same activation of ipsilateral face muscles (a condition which may per se change tinnitus subjective rating) of the real rTMS. Results: responders were 8 out of 14. Two patients dropped ...

The central auditory system has a crucial role in tinnitus generation and maintenance. Curative treatments for tinnitus do not yet exist. However, recent attempts in the therapeutic application of both acoustic stimulation/training procedures and electric/magnetic brain stimulation techniques have yielded promising results. Here, for the first time we combined tailor-made notched music training (TMNMT) with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in an effort to modulate TMNMT efficacy in the treatment of 32 patients with tonal tinnitus and without severe hearing loss. TMNMT is characterized by regular listening to so-called notched music, which is generated by digitally removing the frequency band of one octave width centered at the individual tinnitus frequency. TMNMT was applied for 10 subsequent days (2.5 hours of daily treatment). During the initial 5 days of treatment and the initial 30 minutes of TMNMT sessions, tDCS (current strength: 2 mA; anodal (N = 10) vs. cathodal (N = 11) vs. sham
Objectives: At present, there is no cure for tinnitus. Neurostimulation techniques have shown great promise, but it is uncertain whether they will gain acceptance because of their invasive nature. We have previously demonstrated that pairing acoustic stimuli with vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) also has potential as a viable tinnitus treatment approach. Methods: We conducted a survey on tinnitus sufferers that emphasized questions related to a willingness to pay for the treatment of tinnitus, including VNS. Four hundred thirty-nine individuals responded to an Internet survey modeled after a recent study by Tyler. Results: The average age was about 47 years. Ninety-four percent reported that they had health insurance. Almost 40% had spent between $500 and $10,000 on tinnitus therapies. Almost three-fourths said that they would be willing to have a device implanted if it reduced tinnitus annoyance by half. About 70% of those with very loud tinnitus would be willing to have a temporary implant, and ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Pulsatile tinnitus associated with dehiscent internal carotid artery. T2 - An irremediable condition?. AU - Van Damme, Jean Philippe. AU - Heylen, Géraldine. AU - Gilain, Chantal. AU - Garin, Pierre. PY - 2017/10/1. Y1 - 2017/10/1. N2 - Dehiscent internal carotid artery (ICA) in the middle ear is a rare condition, with conservative treatment primarily recommended. We report the case of a 63-year-old patient referred to the Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) ward for unbearable pulsatile tinnitus. Otoscopy revealed a normal right tympanic membrane, with pulsatile tinnitus but without hearing impairment. Based on imaging studies, including computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the temporal bone, as well as Doppler ultrasound of the internal carotid artery and sigmoid sinus, the diagnosis of ICA canal dehiscence into the tympanic cavity was established, thus excluding the diagnosis of aberrant ICA. Following the patients own request, we undertook surgical ...
ATA would like to draw your attention to a survey sponsored by Hyperacusis Research Ltd., a non-profit organization dedicated to better understanding hyperacusis by funding biomedical research. Many people with tinnitus also have hyperacusis, an over-sensitivity to every day ordinary sounds. Researchers who are working on tinnitus are also interested in hyperacusis, and vice versa, because there may be a common underlying mechanism contributing to the onset and persistence of both conditions.. ATA invites its members and supporters with hyperacusis to take part in this survey that will help researchers better understand what it is like to experience this condition. The survey was developed in conjunction with Sanford Research in Sioux Falls, S.D., a nonprofit research institution that runs the Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford (CoRDS) Registry. Sanford Research has a safe and secure patient registry for all rare diseases.. The Sanford CoRDS survey process will consist of the following ...
ObjectiveTo evaluate the 2 major components of tinnitus severity, loudness and annoyance, and their degree of dependence on characteristics of tinnitus manifest
I have suffered from a particular type of loud clicking or snapping subjective tinnitus in my right ear for 12 years. I suspected it was muscular in nature due to the spasmodic start/stop pattern and slow maximum frequency of about 1 to 8 cycles per second. There were two separate noises, one of a sharper timbre, and one with a duller timbre, both partially but not totally synchronized with each other. In 1992, without looking too hard into the cause, because at that time there were too many possible causes, I had both the stapedius muscle and the tensor typani tendon sectioned in separate operations on advice from my ENT. The stapedius section showed no effect, thereby eliminating this cause. The tensor typani section had a definite but subtle effect on the tendency of the noise to activate, but no change in the noise or noise pattern itself. Until I again picked up my research this year into this problem, I had suspected loud rock music from headphones had somehow damaged the nerve supply ...

Neuromodulation is defined as the process of augmenting neuroplasticity via invasive or non-invasive methods. Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of its external source. The objective of this study was to optimize the parameters of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) for tinnitus suppression. The following factors were optimized in the dose-response design (n = 111): current intensity (1.5 mA or 2 mA), stimulation duration (20 min or 30 min), and number of stimulation sessions (2, 4, 6, 8, or 10), with a 3-4 day washout period between each session. Participants underwent a minimum of 2 sessions in 1 week or maximum of 10 sessions in 5 weeks time. Tinnitus loudness was measured in pre-post design using a 10-point numeric rating scale. There was a significant reduction in tinnitus loudness after tDCS of DLPFC. There was no significant difference between the intensity and duration of stimulation. As the number of sessions ...

Another often-overlooked opportunity is the creation of earmolds for law enforcement and security personnel. Several years ago I learned about a retired security professional in California who became licensed as a hearing instrument specialist in order to make ear impressions legally. Using his professional contacts, he built a successful business by exhibiting at police and security conventions. He would take impressions the first day of the show, then send all the impressions overnight to a lab for quick service and deliver them before the customers left the convention. Although this arrangement may not be possible in all markets, making contact with the local, county, and state law enforcement organizations can be a very good supplemental income stream. These same people are good candidates for custom passive and active hearing protection as well as hearing instruments designed for high-frequency hearing loss. These patients are also excellent candidates for tinnitus retraining therapy ...

  • 2 Subjective tinnitus can arise because of problems in any part of the ear and auditory pathways. (
  • If the primary auditory centres become aware of other neural activity, this is interpreted as noise and the patient perceives it as tinnitus. (
  • Objective tinnitus is produced by an internal acoustic stimulus from a physiological (often referred to as somatic) source which can include both auditory and non-auditory structures. (
  • Modulation of tinnitus follows complex interactions between auditory and somatosensory afferents and can be favored by underlying somatic disorders. (
  • Tinnitus is regularly associated with hearing loss, which can be diagnosed in up to 90% of patients, and with the use of ototoxic drugs, infections, and medical conditions that can affect the hearing function triggering cochlear damage, with neural changes in the central auditory system [ 5 , 16 - 25 ]. (
  • Modulation of tinnitus represents a good example of central integration in the central nervous system, following interactions between auditory and somatosensory afferents occur as early in the auditory pathways as in the cochlear nucleus, at the site of convergence of the projections from the auditory nerve and trigeminal and dorsal column ganglia and brain stem nuclei. (
  • Here, we report that in human subjects with tinnitus and a normal audiogram, auditory brainstem responses show a significantly reduced amplitude of the wave I potential (generated by primary auditory nerve fibers) but normal amplitudes of the more centrally generated wave V. This provides direct physiological evidence of "hidden hearing loss" that manifests as reduced neural output from the cochlea, and consequent renormalization of neuronal response magnitude within the brainstem. (
  • Employing an established computational model, we demonstrate how tinnitus could arise from a homeostatic response of neurons in the central auditory system to reduced auditory nerve input in the absence of elevated hearing thresholds. (
  • Schaette and Kempter, 2006 , 2009 ), we hypothesized that deafferentation of a substantial fraction of the AN fibers, as observed in mice following "temporary" hearing loss ( Kujawa and Liberman, 2009 ), could trigger the development of a neural correlate of tinnitus in central auditory structures. (
  • This deficit appears to be compensated for at the level of the brainstem, supporting the view that tinnitus is promoted by homeostatic mechanisms that act to normalize levels of neural activity in the central auditory system. (
  • Despite the restrictive factors of tinnitus treatment, progress in auditory neuroscience provides a positive view of tinnitus treatment. (
  • Lesions caused by myelin loss of the auditory nerve , or in closely related pathways, may also cause tinnitus. (
