When silencing phantom noises is a matter of science

New study in mice proposes the first gene that could help prevent tinnitus, that ringing in the ears inside one's head when no external sound is present. This discovery is a first step to identify the molecules that could be targeted in treatments to silence the phantom noises, and help thousands of people.

ConclusionIn cases of type I and II DAVFs associated with sinus stenosis, angioplasty and stenting alone seem to be safe and effective. This treatment probably compresses the venules within the sinus walls, promoting thrombosis of the shunts thus solving the underlying cause of the fistula.

Conclusions This study offers some support for greater average improvement in reactions to tinnitus with TM or NS devices compared to the BSG device. The TM group, compared to the BSG and NS groups, showed a greater reduction in ratings of tinnitus loudness on the NRS on average.Supplemental Materialhttps://doi.org/10.23641/asha.5545759

Conclusion Those involved in the management of patients with tinnitus and/or hyperacusis should use a wide range of instruments to assess the full impact of tinnitus on a patient's life and should be prepared to refer a patient for treatment for depression, especially when the patient has anxiety, hyperacusis, and/or insomnia.

ABSTRACT Purpose: to evaluate the perception of the level of quality of life in subjects with tinnitus, with and without hearing loss. Methods: a cross-sectional quantitative study. A total of 189 subjects (mean age 53.06 years) divided into four groups. Group 1: subjects with normal auditory thresholds without tinnitus complaint; Group 2: subjects with normal auditory thresholds and tinnitus complaint; Group 3: subjects with sensorineural hearing loss without tinnitus complaint; Group 4: subjects with sensorineural hearing loss and with tinnitus complaint. Levels of quality of life were investigated through the World Heal...

Conclusion: noise was considered, regardless of gender, harmful to health and associated with perception of musculoskeletal pain. Symptoms and complaints caused by noise have been reported to negatively impact the professional activity of dentists, however, most of them do not adopt preventive measures.RESUMO Objetivo: analisar a percep ção e conhecimento de odontólogos sobre o ruído, sua prevenção e efeitos na saúde e qualidade de vida. Métodos: estudo transversal, realizado com 54 dentistas de ambos os gêneros. Aplicou-se dois questionários: um abordand...

Background and purposeIdiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is characterized by abnormally elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) without identifiable etiology. Recently, however, a subset of patients with presumed IIH have been found with isolated internal jugular vein (IJV) stenosis in the absence of intracranial abnormalities. MethodsFifteen consecutive patients were screened from 46 patients suspected as IIH and were finally confirmed as isolated IJV stenosis. The stenotic IJV was corrected with stenting when the trans‐stenotic mean pressure gradient (∆MPG) was equal to or higher than 5.44 cmH2O. Dynamic magneti...

Authors: Basta D, Gröschel M, Ernst A Abstract Noise is an important socioeconomic problem in industrialized countries. Development of efficient treatment options for the audiological phenomena resulting from noise-induced hearing loss requires in-depth understanding of the underlying damage mechanisms causing peripheral and central nervous changes. Mechanical damage, ischemia and excitotoxicity are mainly responsible for noise-induced cell death and biophysical changes in the cochlea. Auditory synaptopathy is an additional consequence. Besides these cochlear pathologies, noise exposure leads to extensive chan...
