A treatement protocol for tinnitus

Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Tinnnitus is a real therapeutical emergency for ENT clinicians, one of the biggest problem is to have the opportunity to start giving drugs as soon as possible; we started from a few mounths a new kind of e.v. therapy and we realyzed that it gives good results in an unbilivable percentage of cases and also if the time occurred before to begin the treatment is really long (untill 2 mounths).
MATERIALS & METHODS: 18 patients have been treated for Tinnitus in the last 5 months. The average of the age of the patients is 45 years (min.18 y.o., max.72 y.o.). The drug we use is a “Human tissutal plasminogen recombiner activator”; we infuse 3 ml in 250 cc physilogic solution, endovenous, every 12 hours. We have severe inclusion and exclusion parameters to undergo the therapy (particolary correlated to possible haemorragic problems).
RESULTS: 13 patients had a regression of initial symptoms, only 5 patients had no improvement No patient has shown any kind of problem or intollerance from the therapy.
CONCLUSIONS: it’s quite early to be enthusiastic, the casistic must be increased, the results must be controlled, but however this kind of therapy for Tinnitus seems to be very interesting, remarking also that it’s possible to have good results also after some days from the beginning of the pathology.
