The Interrelationship of Tinnitus and Hearing Loss Secondary to Age, Noise Exposure, and Traumatic Brain Injury
Conclusions: Evidence suggests that the occurrence of tinnitus in the military is more closely related to environmental exposures than to aging. The finding that tinnitus affects hearing frequencies across the audiogram spectrum suggests an acoustic injury independent of tonotopicity. Particularly for males>40, tinnitus may be a harbinger of audiologic damage predictive of later hearing loss. (Source: Ear and Hearing)

Cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBTi) as a treatment for tinnitus-related insomnia: a randomised controlled trial
Cogn Behav Ther. 2022 Jun 28:1-19. doi: 10.1080/16506073.2022.2084155. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTInsomnia is a significant difficulty and is reported by large proportion of tinnitus. Although cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBTi) might be an effective treatment, no controlled studies had been conducted to date. This randomised controlled trial evaluated the benefits of CBTi on a sample of 102 people with tinnitus-related insomnia. Participants were randomised to 1) CBTi, 2) Audiology-Based Care (ABC) or 3) Sleep Support Group (SSG). Primary outcomes included insomnia, sleep efficiency and total sleep time. ...

Long COVID, audiovestibular symptoms and persistent chemosensory dysfunction: a systematic review of the current evidence
CONCLUSIONS: The likelihood of patients with persistent audiovestibular symptoms related to COVID-19 was different among the articles; however, olfactory and gustatory disturbances were more consistently reported. Studies with longer follow-up are required to fully evaluate the long-term impact of these conditions.PMID:35763279 | PMC:PMC9137376 | DOI:10.14639/0392-100X-suppl.1-42-2022-10 (Source: Acta Otorhinolaryngologica Italica)

Evaluating the Efficacy of a Smartphone App for Tinnitus Relief Using Behavioral and Brain Imaging Measures
CONCLUSIONS: The reported changes were not significant, possibly due to the small sample size, heterogeneity of the tinnitus handicap among subjects at the start of the project, and the length of the intervention period. Nevertheless, this study underscores the ease of usage of the app and the potential use of brain imaging to assess changes due to a passive, self-administered intervention for individuals with varying levels of tinnitus severity.PMID:35759574 | DOI:10.1044/2022_AJA-21-00170 (Source: American Journal of Audiology)

PCR135 Characterizing Most Bothersome Symptom and Minimal Clinically Important Difference to Establish Patient-Relevant Endpoints in Fabry Disease
Fabry disease (FD) is a rare genetic disorder due to deficiency of lysosomal enzyme, α-galactosidase-A. The Fabry Disease Patient-Reported Outcome (FD-PRO) instrument consists of 19 items that measure neuropathic symptoms (pain, tingling, numbness and burning in upper/lower extremities), headache, abdominal pain, heat intolerance, swelling, tinnitus, fatigue, hearing/vision impairm ent, hypohidrosis, and difficulty engaging in regular physical activities. Each item is evaluated on a 0 (no symptom) to 10 (symptom at its worst) numeric rating scale (NRS). (Source: Value in Health)

Long-term effects of a single psycho-educational session in chronic tinnitus patients
ConclusionsTinnitus Retraining Therapy or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy are effective, though very time-consuming and expensive treatments. A single psycho-educational group session was shown to be highly effective in decreasing the tinnitus burden, which increases feasibility and cost-effectiveness.Trial registrationNot applicable as this is a retrospective reporting of tinnitus outcome in the daily clinical practice, not a clinical trial.
