Randomized Controlled Trial of a Novel Device for Tinnitus Sound Therapy During Sleep.
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 Material: https://doi.org/10.23641/asha.5545759.

We present the first described association of rete mirabile with pial arteriovenous fistula and discuss its clinical presentation and imaging features, with a review of the literature for bilateral carotid and vertebral rete mirabile.
Abstract Cushing disease is a relatively rare cause of Cushing syndrome secondary to a hyperfunctioning pituitary adenoma. In addition to signs and symptoms of hypercortisolism, Cushing disease may present with diverse otolaryngic manifestations, which may guide diagnosis and management. We performed a retrospective chart review of patients who were found to have Cushing disease and who underwent transnasal transsphenoidal surgery for pituitary adenomas between January 1, 2007, and July 1, 2014, at a tertiary academic medical center. There were 37 consecutive patients in this series with Cushing disease caused by ...
A few weeks ago we had an opportunity to review the new Nightingale smart home sleep system from Cambridge Sound Management, a Massachusetts firm. At its core it’s a sound and noise generator that works to distract your brain from the environmental sounds coming from all around you. Similar devices have existed in the past, but the Nightingale brings the technology into the age of digital wellness, home automation, and personalization, plus the proprietary “sound blankets” developed by Cambridge Sound Management are backed up by some serious research. The research the company poin...

A 50-year-old woman presented with a 2-year history of right-sided pulsatile tinnitus. Her medical history was unremarkable. Over the preceding 2 years, with the diagnosis of idiopathic pulsatile tinnitus, a bruit gradually developed and severely disturbed her sleep (Tinnitus Handicap Inventory score of 58).
ConclusionThere is an association between normal tension glaucoma and Flammer syndrome. If future studies confirm this relationship, treatment of Flammer syndrome may help to prevent normal tension glaucoma or to slow down its progression.
