Spontaneous idiopathic tinnitus is a significant interdisciplinary therapeutic problem. Based on different programs of tinnitus treatment, we organized a team of physicians, psychologists and engineers in order to establish the needs for the first Tinnitus Clinic in Poland. At the same time, together with number of clinical centres, scientific societies and(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)
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)
The purpose of this study was to summarize the results achieved by patients with tinnitus and/or hyperacusis during the Tinnitus Retraining Therapy. One hundred cases, out of 516 patients registered until January 1999 at the Tinnitus and Hyperacusis Management Clinic, Warsaw, Poland, were examined. The patients have been treated for at least 10 months but(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)
INTRODUCTION Tinnitus in children is still rarely mentioned in medical literature. The prevalence of pediatric tinnitus has been reported to range between 3-37% and higher in children with hearing loss. OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to estimate the prevalence of the tinnitus in 7 years old children and to conduct statistical analysis of the(More)
According to our observations tinnitus is becoming increasingly common amongst younger persons. About 25% of patients registered in our Tinnitus Clinic, are below the age of 35. Group of 235 tinnitus patients ranging in age from 18 to 35 years old were evaluated for this study. There were no other pre-selection criteria except the age. All of the patients(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)
