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.

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...

Authors: Kratzsch V, Goebel G Abstract Health authorities underestimate the negative influence of emotional factors such as depression, anxiety disorders, or somatoform disorders in the development of tinnitus and their contribution to a poor prognosis. This can lead to underestimation of the impairment suffered by tinnitus patients and, consequently, a possibly incorrect treatment approach or belated initiation of therapy. Mental disorders play a large role in the S3AWMF "Tinnitus" guidelines. Thus, the somatic and psychiatric approaches for treatment of chronic tinnitus patients are combi...

Multiple linear regression analyses were performed to identify the relationship of anxiety sensitivity and hearing loss to tinnitus symptoms severity. Results: Both anxiety sensitivity a...

Publication date: Available online 26 December 2017 Source:European Annals of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Diseases Author(s): A. Londero, P. Bonfils, J.P. Lefaucheur Subjective tinnitus is a symptom in many ENT pathologies, for which there is no curative treatment. It may be poorly tolerated by some patients, who develop attention or sleep disorder or even major anxiety and depression, severely impairing quality of life. Pathophysiological models of the genesis and maintenance of tinnitus symptomatology highlight maladaptive cerebral plasticity induced by peripheral hearing loss. Although not fully elucidated, thes...

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.
