CONCLUSION: Our study supports the concept of NVCC in VP and additionally suggests that nerve angulation may be a specific feature. Neurovascular contact remains a common phenomenon in asymptomatic patients and therefore correlation with neuro-otology assessment remains essential.

We examined neuroinflammation in the auditory cortex following noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) and its role in tinnitus in rodent models. Our results indicate that NIHL is associated with elevated expression of proinflammatory cytokines and microglial activation—two defining features of neuroinfla mmatory responses—in the primary auditory cortex (AI). Genetic knockout of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) or pharmacologically blocking TNF-α expression prevented neuroinflammation and ameliorated the behavioral phenotype associated with tinnitus in mice with NIHL. Conversely, infusion of T NF-&alph...
