Conclusion IAC exostoses and osteomas are rare lesions that lead to insidious onset of debilitating symptoms from vestibulocochlear nerve dysfunction. Although the role of surgical decompression remains unclear, it appears that patients presenting with vertigo have more favorable response to surgical decompression as compared with those presenting with tinnitus and sensorineural hearing loss.

We report two cases of TMJ herniation through the FH presenting with clicking tinnitus that were treated differently.DiscussionThe treatment of TMJ herniation depends on the presenting symptoms and the patient's willingness to undergo surgical correction. If surgical management is chosen, the bone can be obliterated using tragal cartilage and temporalis fascia.

ConclusionsNone of the four GPMs was sensitive to the improvements in both speech reception and tinnitus that were associated with cochlear implantation. To capture fully the benefits of interventions for auditory disorders, developments of current GPMs would need to be sensitive to both the health-related and non-health-related aspects of auditory dysfunction.

Publication date: Available online 15 April 2019Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Jeffrey Hullfish, William Sedley, Sven VannesteAbstractMore than 150 years have passed since Helmholtz first described perception as a process of unconscious inference about the causes of sensations. His ideas have since inspired a wealth of literature investigating the mechanisms underlying these inferences. In recent years, much of this work has converged on the notion that the brain is a hierarchical generative model of its environment that predicts sensations and updates itself based on prediction errors. Here, we ...

CONCLUSION: There is low-quality evidence for a positive effect of conservative temporomandibular disorders treatment on tinnitus complaints. The combination of splint therapy and exercise treatment is currently the best investigated treatment approach, showing a decrease in tinnitus severity and intensity. Despite the low level of evidence and the methodologic issues in the included studies, it is noteworthy that all included studies show positive treatment effects.
