The purpose of this study was to determine whether distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) can be used to distinguish among four groups with audiometrically normal-hearing sensitivity: (1) control adults without tinnitus or hyperacusis, (2) patients with tinnitus alone, (3) patients with hyperacusis alone, and (4) patients with both tinnitus and(More)
The patients with tinnitus and/or hyperacusis undergoing an 18-24 month period of TRT are divided into five categories of treatment. Different types of counselling and sound therapy are used in each category. Selection of patients into a specific category depends on such factors as: hyperacusis, subjective hearing loss and long-lasting effect of noise on(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) and extended high-frequency (EHF) thresholds in a control group and in patients with normal hearing sensitivity in the conventional frequency range and reporting unilateral tinnitus. MATERIAL/METHODS Seventy patients were enrolled in the study: 47 patients(More)
Introduction. Although tinnitus often has a significant impact on individual's life, there are still few reports relating to tinnitus in children. In our tinnitus clinic, children with distressing tinnitus constitute about 0,5% of all our patients. Objectives. The aim of this study was to analyse children with troublesome tinnitus as regards epidemiology,(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY To evaluate the influence of high frequency hearing loss (> 8000 Hz) on distortion product otoacoustic emissions registered in the frequency range from 0,5 to 8 kHz. MATERIAL AND METHODS 280 ears with tinnitus and normal hearing (0.25-8 kHz) divided into 3 groups depending on the degree of high frequency hearing loss: group A--hearing(More)
Distortion Product Otoacoustic Emission (DPOAE) has been used as a tool to determine the presence of cochlear pathology. It is well known that the damage of Outer Hair Cells (OHCs) results in reduced auditory sensitivity and generation of tinnitus. At the same time tinnitus arises in normal hearing persons as well. The aim of this study was the assessment(More)
