Final Common Pathway for Tinnitus: Theoretical and Clinical Implications of Neuroanatomical Substrates

A final common pathway (FCP) for tinnitus has been hypothesized since 1989 for all clinical types of tinnitus, particularly subjective idiopathic tinnitus (SIT) of the severe disabling type. This was intended to explain the transformation-transition of the sensation of an aberrant auditory sensation—tinnitus (i.e., the sensory component)—to one of affect (i.e., the emotional-behavioral component) or, […]

Central Nervous System Neurodegeneration and Tinnitus: A Clinical Experience Part II: Translational Neurovascular Theory of Neurodegenerative CNS Disease and Tinnitus

The translation of a neurovascular hypothesis for Alzheimer’s disease to subjective idiopathic tinnitus (SIT) is presented as a challenge to the predominantly sensorineural view of SIT and its clinical application for tinnitus treatment. The concept of neurovascular dysfunction and neurodegeneration (ND) in SIT patients has been proposed and reported as an etiology in a particular […]

Central Nervous System Neurodegeneration and Tinnitus: A Clinical Experience Part I: Diagnosis

CNS Neurodegeneration and Tinnitus IIn an evolving clinical experience since 1979, the medical significance of the symptom of tinnitus has been identified as a “soft” sign of neurodegeneration (ND) in the central nervous system (CNS) in a particular subset of tinnitus patients diagnosed with a predominantly central-type, severe, disabling, subjective idiopathic tinnitus.To highlight this experience, […]

Ultra-high-frequency acoustic stimulation and tinnitus control: a positron emission tomography study

Ultra-high-frequency (UHF) external acoustic stimulation with the UltraQuiet device (UQ) has been reported to provide significant relief of severe disabling-type tinnitus. The nuclear medicine imaging technique of positron emission tomography (PET) was selected as a monitoring system to compare objectively metabolic alterations in brain function before and after UHF/UQ and to correlate the PET data […]

Ultrahigh frequency stimulation for tinnitus relief-a method for patient selection.

The efficacy of ultrahigh frequency (UHF) and/or ultrasonic (US) external acoustic stimulation has been found to be directly related to residual neuronal function in the ultrahigh frequency/ultrasonic frequency range. Retrospective review of 26 patients has revealed a correlation between the efficacy of the UltraQuiet unit and the residual auditory threshold neuronal response established by ultrahigh […]

Ultrahigh frequency acoustic stimulation-a pet analysis pre and post stimulation in six tinnitus patients.

PET of brain neuro-imaging was performed in six tinnitus patients pre and post ultrahigh frequency stimulation attempting tinnitus relief. Significant has been findings of alterations in metabolism as identified by perfusion asymmetries in multiple regions of interest in brain (primary auditory cortex, medial temporal lobe system, frontal, parietal lobes, and cerebellum. Statistical significance was identified […]

Tinnitus outcome profile and tinnitus control

This reports recommends the consideration of development of additional outcome measures to be used as a battery of subjective self-assessment questionnaires for patients with tinnitus. The goal is improved overall care for the tinnitus patient. The name of the battery of outcome questionnaires is TOP. Five existing outcome measurements have been incorporated into the profile […]

Quantitative electroencephalography: preliminary report—tinnitus

This preliminary report is an account of 21 consecutive patients who had tinnitus of the severe disabling type and were examined with quantitative electroencephalography (QEEG).

Gaba – benzodiazepine – chloride receptor – targeted therapy for tinnitus control: preliminary report

Our goal was to attempt to establish neuropharmacological tinnitus control (i.e., relief) with medication directed to restoration of a deficiency in the g-aminobutyric acid – benzodiazepine – chloride receptor in tinnitus patients with a diagnosis of a predominantly central type tinnitus.

Measurement of bone conduction levels for high frequencies

For assessment of safety, it is necessary to measure the maximum possible force exerted by a bone conduction device coupled to the human head.
