AbstractTinnitus, a common hearing condition encountered in medicolegal evaluations, often but not always in association with traumatic brain injuries, can adversely impact both cognitive and affective functioning and neuropsychological test results. Although it has been traditionally conceptualized as primarily related to cochlear pathology, tinnitus has been seen more recently as a condition involving brain plasticity. Its persistent clinical effect on cognition and affect is compounded by comorbid psychiatric syndromes such as depression. Understanding the impact of tinnitus, a factor often difficult to capture and negl...

Conclusions: Guided (using audiological support) iCBT for tinnitus resulted in statistically significant reductions in tinnitus distress and comorbidities (insomnia, depression, hyperacusis, cognitive failures) and a significant increase in quality of life. These effects remained stable at 2-months postintervention. Further trials to determine the longer term efficacy of iCBT to investigate predictors of outcome and to compare iCBT with standard clinical care in the United Kingdom are required. Registered at clinicaltrials.gov: NCT02370810 on 5/03/2015.

Soterix Medical today released results from trials of its direct current stimulation-limited total energy technology designed to treat depression, touting that the device was found to be safe and effective with improvements in depression-rating metrics lasting for a month after treatment. The tDCS-LTE system is designed to deliver energy to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex region of the brain which is implicated in depression control, the New York-based company said. In the first trial, the company reported that its tDCS-LTE system was effective and safe as an add-on intervention for patients with type I or II bipolar di...

This study describes characteristics of FMD patients with and without A and/or D (A/D).Methods: Patients enrolled in the US Registry for FMD between 2009-2017 and had A/D information were analyzed (n=985). Diagnosis of A/D was ascertained from patient charts or self-reported via medical history questionnaires at time of registry enrollment. Demographics, family history, past medical history, presenting symptoms, and affected vascular beds were compared between patients with and without A/D.Results: A total of 351 (35.6%) had A/D. Of patients with A/D, 126 (35.9%) had both. Patients with A/D were more likely to have a famil...

Conclusion: Despite a mild tinnitus handicap, the percentage of people concerned by tinnitus in this regiment is higher (19%) than that in the estimated percentage of general population of European countries (about 10%). It should be of interest to replicate this type of study from other regiments and from other countries. Education and good fitting of hearing protection for prevention of acoustic trauma sequelae should still be encouraged. PMID: 29590475 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
