It was performed on brain magnetic resonance images of patients who consulted the ear, nose, and throat clinic with tinnitus complaint. Statistical hypothesis tests and classification experiments were performed on these data to find out structural differences in internal auditory channel components in patients with tinnitus after obtaining cross-...

We report a severe adverse event occurring in the course of a cohort study (ISRCTN13784335) aimed at measuring the efficacy and safety of venous stenting in the treatment of patients with medically refractory idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). The patient was a 41-year-old woman who was not overweight, who presented with severe headache, grade 1 bilateral papilledema and transient tinnitus, refractory to medical treatment. Right transverse sinus stenting was successfully performed. Following surgery, the patient's state of consciousness decreased acutely with rapid and progressive loss of brainstem reflex. CT scan...

Tinnitus impairs many people's quality of life. The treatment of these patients is often a major challenge for general physicians, otolaryngologists, and psychiatrists particularly since reliably effective therapeutic tools are virtually not available. This not the least because the knowledge about its pathophysiology is still fragmentary. In search of the origins of tinnitus, early functional imaging studies have expanded the focus of tinnitus research to the brain. They supported the notion that this auditory phantom perception is associated with hyperactivity in primary and higher-order auditory processing areas.

A unique track at this year’s Health 2.0 Fall Conference is a SleepTech Summit focusing on innovations that enhance or improve a person’s ability to achieve a quicker, longer, and more refreshing sleep. As part of the main exhibit hall, six sleep-related companies were demoing their devices and technologies, and Medgadget had a chance to hold short interviews with each one. In addition to these six technology companies, Sleep-Geek was also in attendance. Sleep-Geek is a website and online community founded in 2010 with a mission to serve the mattress industry by connecting members with ideas that serve their pr...
