ConclusionsThis study demonstrates there is wide variation in how tinnitus is evaluated and managed by GPs, which represents a gap in clinical care. We recommend further research, implementation of a service model for tinnitus, national clinical guidelines, training pathways for primary care staff and establishment of regional direct-access tinnitus clinics throughout Ireland.

Purpose of review The association between hallucinations and sensory loss, especially vision- and hearing-impairment, has been firmly established over the past years. The deafferentation theory, a decrease of the threshold for activation in the brain and the consequential imbalance between excitatory and inhibitory brain networks, is hypothesized to underly this relationship. Here we review the studies investigating this theory with a focus on the most recent literature to better understand the contribution of sensory loss to hallucinations. Recent findings A large cross-sectional study has recently confirmed the rela...

Due to its rarity and similar sound, typewriter tinnitus (TT) can be misdiagnosed as middle ear myoclonic tinnitus (MEMT). We aim to clarify the characteristics of TT compared to MEMT, and the long-term therapeutic response to carbamazepine.

CONCLUSION: An acute tinnitus model with minimal structural changes by noise exposure was set up, and used to verify tinnitus objectively by measuring the GPIAS value. Steroid therapy for control of tinnitus was validated in this animal model. PMID: 32242342 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the graft take rate and hearing gain of endoscopic cartilage myringoplasty with inside out elevation of a tympanomeatal flap for repairing an anterior tympanic membrane perforation. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective case series. SETTING: Tertiary university hospital. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study population consisted of patients with an anterior perforation undergoing endoscopic cartilage myringoplasty with inside out elevation of a tympanomeatal flap. The primary outcome was the graft take rate at 6 months. The secondary outcomes were the air-bone gap (ABG) ga...

Federal health officials are on the brink of recommending face coverings to help stem the spread of COVID-19, according to recent news reports. But masks and other face coverings muffle the wearers’ voices and prevent people from reading their lips, writes University of Florida graduate student Laken Brookes in a CNN article. For people who are hard of hearing, that’s a problem, she says. Brookes, who has tinnitus, connected with a number of people with and without hearing challenges about communication problems related to masks. She notes that the fallback method—using a whiteboard passed back and forth&...

Abstract We provide here the first systematic review on the studies dealing with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for traumatic brain injury (TBI) in animals and humans. Several experimental studies in animal models have explored with promising results the use of rTMS to enhance neuroprotection and recovery after TBI. However, there are surprisingly few studies that have obtained substantial evidence regarding effects of rTMS in humans with TBI, many of them are case reports investigating the heterogeneous conditions linked to TBI. The most studies have investigated the effects of rTMS in subjec...
