Selective therapeutic electrostimulation (set) in treatment of tinnitus patients with objective estimation of therapy efficacy

Abstract

Tinnitus is still a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma and is very difficult to predict improvement in it. Authors use a modification of selective therapeutic electrostimulation (SET) to reduce or to subside tinnitus.. Studied population consisted of 34 patients with persistent tinnitus, among them 24 women and 10 men in age 20 -63 years. There are two groups divided. The first group was treated original method of SET whilst the second group was performed the same procedure but without electrical stimulation (placebo – group). SET was made once a day within a period 10 days. Each patient made self-opinion in prepared by authors questionnaire and in Clinical Beck Scale of Depression Estimation Test. Clinical otolaryngological, neurological examination, audiologic test and measurement of tinnitus intensity and frequency were carried out. Effects after therapy were estimated based on results of BERA, AWMPs after 3- monthly observation. DPOAE was registration just before SET and just after SET and after 3 months. A lot of patients announced that their symptoms were reduced or subsided. Objective examinations (BERA, AWMP) especially revealed shortness of latency and sometimes increased amplitude. There was observed increased amplitude of DPOAE mainly just after SET. These changes of result objective measurement were no noted in second group – placebo.
