We analyzed relationships among tinnitus relief, dizziness, and results of vertical autocorrelation studies of head movement to investigate the effect of greater occipital nerve block on the sensory and motor system in 2 patients with abnormal head movement. Tinnitus improved in 14 (52%) of 28 tinnitus patients after occipital nerve block. The percentage of(More)
The present study showed that there were close relationships between tinnitus relief and improved word perception by means of a grammatically correct but non-sense Japanese word perception test. Fourteen out of 20 patients reported tinnitus relief and improvement in hearing. Nine out of the 14 patients were thought to be significantly improved in word(More)
The present study aimed to explain how tinnitus relief following electrical promontory stimulation affects detection of changes in pitch frequency. To determine the effects of tinnitus relief on the auditory system. Japanese words with the same sound but different intonation were used to verify the effects of tinnitus relief on pitch detection in tinnitus(More)
Improved word perception in hearing-impaired patients following electrical stimulation of ears was shown by means of a grammatically correct but non-sense Japanese 4-segment sentence perception test. Improved word perception was reported in 15 out of 20 patients without tinnitus following electrical stimulation of ears. In 11 out of 15 patients, the number(More)
An electrical tinnitus suppressor based on the use of an extracochlear stimulator has been developed at Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan, and was implanted in 2 male and 2 female patients. Tinnitus improved in all patients because the auditory nerve was able to be stimulated at home whenever patients wanted treatment. Additional benefits reported after(More)
