Progressive Tinnitus Management Level 3 Skills Education: A 5-Year Clinical Retrospective.
Conclusion: The self-management skills taught in the progressive tinnitus management Level 3 workshops are sustained over time even when limited resources prevent the full complement of workshops or the involvement of mental health services. The workshops can also be successfully implemented through remote delivery via videoconferencing (telehealth). Supplemental Materials: https://doi.org/10.23641/asha.5370883.

Fanor Saavedra-Pozo, Juan Vicenty-Padilla, Rafael Rodriguez-MercadoJournal of Craniovertebral Junction and Spine 2017 8(3):268-270Vertebrojugular fistulas have been described in the literature associated with blunt or penetrating injury and iatrogenic or spontaneous development. Its presentation may be broad and may include symptoms of radiculopathy, vertebrobasilar insufficiency, tinnitus, and bruit. However, so far, no direct cardiac complications had been reported. Here, we describe a case of an 86-year-old female who suffered a C5 vertebral fracture secondary to a ground-level fall that was initially treated conservati...
Conclusion The starting presentation levels used for pure-tone audiometry and measurement of ULLs should be lower than those recommended by the BSA for people with tinnitus and hyperacusis.

Conclusion We conclude that the progressive approach of treatment demonstrated here should be of benefit to most individuals with tinnitus and that the Widex Zen sound therapy is a worthwhile treatment for many tinnitus sufferers.
Conclusions Pulsed tones provide advantages over steady and warble tones for patients regardless of hearing or tinnitus status. Although listeners preferred pulsed and warble tones to steady tones, pulsed tones are not susceptible to the effects of off-frequency listening, a consideration when testing listeners with sloping audiograms.
Conclusions The tinnitus loudness rating performed better against acceptability criteria for reliability and validity than did the tinnitus loudness matching test administered by an audiologist. But the rating question is still limited because it is a single-item instrument and is probably able to detect only large changes (at least 3.5 points).
Conclusions: Venous sinus diverticula causing pulsatile tinnitus can be successfully treated with stent-assisted coil embolization with complete resolution of clinical symptoms. This is in concordance with 13 case reports in the literature involving 14 patients with venous sinus diverticula treated using endovascular techniques.
Conclusion: Speech intelligibility can be significantly improved by VSB implantation, especially in patients with a down-sloping hearing loss. This finding can help select patients who will benefit most from VSB implantation.
