Publication date: Available online 16 March 2019Source: NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Hannah Brotherton, Charlotte Turtle, Christopher J. Plack, Kevin J. Munro, Roland SchaetteAbstractThe occurrence of tinnitus is associated with hearing loss and neuroplastic changes in the brain, but disentangling correlation and causation has remained difficult in both human and animal studies. Here we use earplugs to cause a period of monaural deprivation to induce a temporary, fully reversible tinnitus sensation, to test whether differences in subcortical changes in neural response gain, as reflected through changes in acoustic reflex thresho...

ConclusionWe detected that the total oxidant status, oxidative stress index and serum prolidase enzyme activity levels were higher in patients with tinnitus when compared to the healthy controls. This finding suggests that oxidative stress index and serum prolidase enzyme activity may play a role in the etiopathogenesis of tinnitus.ResumoIntroduçãoO zumbido é definido como a percepção de um som na cabeça na ausência de sons externos. A causa do zumbido ainda é desconhecida.ObjetivoNosso objetivo foi comparar os níveis séricos do estado oxidante total, est...

CONCLUSION: Noise trauma initially results in hair cell damage. After recovery, hearing loss may persist, which can be due to synaptic lesions in the first neuron. An adequate testbattery has to be developped. PMID: 30874853 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurposePulsatile tinnitus (PT) due to sigmoid sinus wall anomalies (SSWA) is a common health disorder. The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficiency of simple sigmoid sinus bony wall repair on tinnitus relief and psychological improvement.MethodsNine cases of PT due to SSWA were retrospectively reviewed. All of these cases had defect of sigmoid sinus bony wall with or without diverticulum in high-resolution CT. The bony defects were repaired by multi-layer materials, i.e., temporalis fascia, bone dust and another layer of bone dust. The assessment of visual analog scale (VAS) of tinnitus and Mandarin v...

Looking for a group that explores the relationship between audiological services and public health issues? Let Amy Boudin-George explain why this SIG is for you. When did you join your SIG—and what made you want to join? I joined after I began working in the Department of Defense (DoD), where hearing loss and prevention are seen as being in the public health domain, in addition to being a medical issue. SIG 8 hits that exact mark and goes beyond, showing how hearing loss and tinnitus are public health issues on a global scale. How has your involvement with the SIG helped you in your career? ...

We report two puzzling cases of pulsatile tinnitus with normal ENT examinations: the first was due to a cervical internal carotid artery dissection, and the second to the compression of the foramina of Monro by a craniopharyngioma, leading to hydrocephalus.DiscussionWe review the systematic management and emphasize the decisive role of the ENT clinician regarding this pulsatile tinnitus complaint, because of the potentially severe complications of its underlying pathology.
