Figures and Tables from this paper


Hearing aids as an adjunct to counseling: Tinnitus patients who choose amplification do better than those that don't
It was concluded that patients with hearing loss and tinnitus should trial amplification and the use of hearing aids would provide greater reduction in THQ scores than counseling alone. Expand
Effects of acoustical stimuli delivered through hearing aids on tinnitus.
The results suggest that use of acoustic stimuli, particularly fractal tones, delivered though hearing aids can provide amplification while allowing for relief for some tinnitus sufferers. Expand
Ringing Ears: The Neuroscience of Tinnitus
Evidence is considered that deafferentation of tonotopically organized central auditory structures leads to increased neuron spontaneous firing rates and neural synchrony in the hearing loss region, which covers the frequency spectrum of tinnitus sounds. Expand
Phantom auditory perception (tinnitus): mechanisms of generation and perception
Existing theories and their extrapolation are presented, together with some new potential mechanisms of tinnitus generation, encompassing the involvement of calcium and calcium channels in cochlear function, with implications for malfunction and aging of the auditory and vestibular systems. Expand
The Tinnitus Functional Index: Development of a New Clinical Measure for Chronic, Intrusive Tinnitus
The TFI should be useful in both clinical and research settings because of its responsiveness to treatment-related change, validity for scaling the overall severity of tinnitus, and comprehensive coverage of multiple domains of t Finnitus severity. Expand
Why do people fitted with hearing aids not wear them?
Identifying factors that affect hearing aid usage are necessary for devising appropriate rehabilitation strategies to ensure greater use of hearing aids. Expand
General review of tinnitus: prevalence, mechanisms, effects, and management.
A broad-based review of what is presently known about tinnitus, including prevalence, associated factors, theories of pathophysiology, psychological effects, effects on disability and handicap, workers' compensation issues, clinical assessment, and various forms of treatment is provided. Expand
Prevalence and characteristics of tinnitus among US adults.
The prevalence of frequent tinnitus is highest among older adults, non-Hispanic whites, former smokers, and adults with hypertension, hearing impairment, loud noise exposure, or generalized anxiety disorder. Expand
