Experiences of treatment of sever type of tinnitus

Sever type of tinnitus is very hard to treat because tinnitus is highly inked to emotional system, the limbic system. To treat it, therefore, all means such as life style intervention, consultation, medication, doctor’s rich successful experience and relaxation should be used. External electrical stimulation may be one of relaxation therapy and tinntius relieved once […]

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

Benzodiazepine receptor distribution in severe intractable tinnitus

Tinnitus affects nearly 50 million people in the United States, with a minority demonstrating marked functional impairment. Alterations of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) neuronal function and benzodiazepine receptor (BZR) function in particular have been implicated in the pathophysiology of severe, chronic tinnitus. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the distribution of BZR in […]

Sodium enoxaparin for treatment of immune-mediated sensorineural hearing loss (imsnhl)

The literature does not report others therapeutic protocols for immune-mediated sensorineural hearing loss (IMSNHL) treatment with sodium enoxaparin or other kinds of unfractionated heparin: our decision to use enoxaparin was based both on the pathogenesis of this condition and on evaluation of the other classes of drugs currently used. Fifty patients, who had suffered from […]

Chronic tinnitus resulting from cerumen removal procedures

This study was undertaken to determine how many cases of chronic tinnitus in a clinic population resulted from cerumen removal procedures and to summarize cerumen management methodologies and recommendations that will reduce the likelihood of such serious complications. Detailed questionnaires were mailed to 2,400 consecutive patients (1,704 male, 696 female; mean age, 53.3 ± 11.8 […]

Sodium enoxaparin and venovenous hemofiltration for treatment of sudden sensorineural hearing loss and tinnitus.

The pathogenesis of sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) and tinnitus are still not well understood. Prompted by such observations, we implemented a protocol using sodium enoxaparin associated with a venovenous hemofiltration for treatment of sudden hearing loss and tinnitus. The venovenous hemofiltration selectively eliminates fibrinogen, low-density lipoprotein, cholesterol, triglycerides, lipoprotein and complement from the blood […]

Effects of stapedectomy on tinnitus in patients with otosclerosis

Tinnitus frequently accompanies hearing loss in patients with otosclerosis and has been correlated with distinct otosclerotic pathologies. The objective of our study was to evaluate the effect of stapedectomy on tinnitus in patients with otosclerosis. Forty patients were retrospectively interviewed for assessment of preoperative versus postoperative levels of tinnitus distress using the standardized Klockhoff-Lindblom (K/L) […]

The effect of music therapy on the early diagnosis of sensoneural hearing loss baby; pilot study of total care

The purpose of this study is to present the results of a pilot study of early detection of sensoneural hearing loss and early intervention to use music therapy, in order to demonstrate the applications of music therapy, and to measure systematically some of its effects on babies. Subjects for this study were 40 babies (22 […]

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 […]

Tinnitus bei otosklerose

Das subjektive Ohrgeraeusch / Tinnitus/ ist eine oft getroffene Erscheinung und wird unregelmäßig bei allen Individen beobachtet. Es ist logisch, besonders wenn es einseitig ist, die Ursache für das Geräusch bei der Otosklerose nämlich in den pathogenetischen Mechanismen der Erkrankung zu suchen. Diese Arbeit präsentiert unsere klinische Beobachtungen auf das Ohrgeräusch bei chirurgisch bestätigten Fällen […]
