UCSF Pulsatile Tinnitus Clinic Research Survey
If you are a whoosher 18 years old
or older, you are encouraged to complete this survey. It will take approximately ten minutes.
From the survey page:
We are conducting this survey to better understand
the impact that pulsatile tinnitus has on people's lives in terms of depression, anxiety, and function. We hope that this
information will help guide us in terms of providing better care for our patients and raising awareness of pulsatile tinnitus
as an illness.
Trial: Venous Sinus Stenting to Treat Intractable Pulsatile Tinnitus Caused by Venous Sinus Stenosis
The FDA and the Weill Cornell
Institutional Review Board (IRB) have approved a new clinical trial for pulsatile tinnitus at Weill Cornell Medical College
in New York City. The study will specifically address cases of stenosis (i.e. narrowing) of veins near the brain, most
commonly the transverse and sigmoid sinuses.
Read more information about the new clinical trial here. See additional info about the "Venous Sinus Stenting to Treat Intractable Pulsatile Tinnitus Caused by Venous Sinus Stenosis" study on www.clinicaltrials.gov.
And be sure to review (with your doctors!) the Cured Whooshers page for medical reports and personal
stories related to venous sinus stenosis (see transverse sinus stenosis or sigmoid sinus stenosis).
The Otology Research Fund
Maintained by the the Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the
University of Maryland School of Medicine
"Gifts to the Otology Research Fund help support research in a variety
of ear-related subjects, which include genetic hearing loss, including that associated with visual and balance disorders,
noise-induced hearing loss, pulsatile tinnitus
and non-rhythmic tinnitus. Ongoing clinical and
translational studies for pulsatile tinnitus include research directed towards understanding sigmoid sinus wall anomalies,
idiopathic intracranial hypertension, transverse sinus stenosis, and other venous causes of pulsatile tinnitus. These include
developing models for reproduction and modulation of pulsatile tinnitus, radiographic imaging techniques, and surgical interventions.
