The use of sodic enoxaparin in the treatment of tinnitus

Abstract

Tinnitus is a pathological event caused by abnormal stimulation of any point along the acoustic pathway. Generally it has a sharp tone accompanied by hearing impairment. Currently no widely-used standard protocol for treatment of this condition exists and vascular microthrombotic factors are considered as the main determinants. Prompted by such observations, we implemented a protocol using an anticoagulant: Sodic enoxaparina. It is a kind of heparin with a low molecular weight and endowed with antithrombotic activity. We studied 40 patients aged between 20 and 65 years, who had suffered from tinnitus for at least two months. We divided patients in two groups: in the first group enoxaparina was administered for 10 days, in the second group the patients were treated with traditional therapy (corticosteroids, vasoactives, multivitamins and anticoagulants). At the beginning and at the end of the therapy period the patients were controlled by instrumental examinations. All patients treated with anticoagulant therapy have shown an evident improvement of tinnitus symptom.
No patient had side effects from this treatment. The results indicate that it would be an excellent mode of therapy for the patients with tinnitus.
