Tinnitus due to irritations of the cervical spines

Tinnitus due to irritations of the cervical spines and the neck High incidence rates of functional neurootological disorders containing vertigo and tinnitus are found in the group of head-neck-trauma patients . This also is important in cases of musculo-skeletal dysfunctions like neck dystonus and cervical diseases. These groups are seen to form subgroups in which […]

Typical Caloric ENG Findings in the Claussen-Butterfly in Tinnitus Cases

The aim of this study was to investigate the different caloric findings in the Claussen-Butterflies in tinnitus patients under the assumption of a closely interrelated stato-acoustic network and to correlate these findings with our different tinnitus types. For this we used the NODEC IV data bank and searched for the most frequent types of butterflies […]

Tinnitus in combination with a vestibular recruitment

Vestibular Stimulus Response Intensity Comparisons (VSRIC) leading to the definition of a vestibular recruitment can be achieved by using intensity graded supraliminal stimuli of two different pairs. The perrotatory nystagmus results should be compared to the ipsilateral caloric warm responses. Discrepancies in both these tests indicate a vestibular recruitment or other pathology, thus reflecting the […]

NIHL-related Tinnitus: Pathophysiological and Medico-legal Issues

Due to the increasing amount of requests for compensation, a medicolegal decision making system for NIHL-related tinnitus was developed within the Belgian Institute for Occupational Diseases, and – after a few preliminary trials – systematically used since 2002. This decision making system was first presented at the NES-meeting in Bad Kissingen 2004, and in the […]

A New Tinnitus Model Investigated through Brain Electric Tomography – LORETA –

Brain neurosensorial disorders, i.e: tinnitus, represents one of most reasons of disability. The most often used methods for functional imaging of the human brain are positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). These tomographies provide three-dimensional (3D) images comprising information on metabolism.  Although the spatial resolution of these images is excellent, the […]

Tinnitus as alarm bell

Sudden deafness in childhood: a report of four cases

BACKGROUND: sudden deafness is not a common pathology in childhood. Generally is not associated with dizziness and tinnitus. Very frequently the diagnosis is postpone because the parents and the patients don´t notice the isolated hearing loss. Sometimes the etiology is not found but there are evidences that inner ear malformation and viral infections are related […]

The impact of hearing loss in cognitive and motor impairment in the elderly

Monitoring eeg during electrical stimulation for improvement in tinnitus suppression

Temporary tinnitus relief is crucially related to how much patients feel relaxation during electrical stimulation. Electrical stimulation made tinnitus patients experience relief of tinnitus just after the treatment when patients slept during treatment. However, more than 10% of patients did not experience tinnitus relief even if patients reported they could sleep during treatment. My theory […]

P-100 in the treatment of Ménière’s disease, a clinical study

Patients suffering from Ménière’s disease are particularly sensitive to negative pressure in the middle ear. E.g. attacks of vertigo can be triggered by a descent in an aircraft when ventilation of the middle ear can become critical. Positive pressure pulse treatment has shown to have a beneficial effect on the symptomatology, and is now a […]
