Objective: Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is one of the methods described in the literature to decrease the perceived loudness and distress caused by tinnitus. However, the main effect is not clear and the number of responders to the treatment is variable. The objective of the present study was to investigate the effect of the placement of the cathode on the outcome measurements. Methods: Patients considered for the trial were chronic non-pulsatile tinnitus patients with complaints for more than 3 months and a Tinnitus Functional Index (TFI) score that exceeded 25...

BACKGROUND: The rationale for treatment of dural arteriovenous fistulas (dAVF) without cortical venous reflux is symptomatic resolution. Most studies of dural arteriovenous fistula treatment, including those for stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), have focused on angiographic obliteration instead of clinical symptomatic outcome. METHODS: The authors evaluated their institutional experience with SRS for cerebral dAVFs without cortical venous reflux from 1991 to 2016, evaluating angiographic and clinical outcomes, focusing on the course of pulsatile tinnitus and/or ocular symptoms after treatment...

OBJECTIVE: The objective is to describe a large cohort of patients presenting with patulous Eustachian tube (pET) dysfunction. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective patient series. SETTING: Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS: All outpatient visits (2004-2016) that were assigned ICD9 code (381.7-Patulous Eustachian tube) were screened. Only patients with observed tympanic membrane movements during ipsilateral nasal breathing or acoustic reflex decay testing demonstrating transmitted nasal breathing were included (n = 190, n = 239 ears)...

PURPOSE: To report clinical features of Susac's syndrome (SS) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 25-year-old Caucasian female with a history of non-pulsatile migraine, tinnitus, and verbal apraxia complaining of peripheral scotoma in left eye due to branch retinal arteriole occlusion (BRAO) was diagnosed as having SS after audiometric test, brain magnetic resonance imaging, and multimodal retinal imaging...

We report a case of dural arteriovenous fistula at the left transverse sinus and sigmoid sinus(TS-dAVF), which was treated with transvenous embolization(TVE)by direct puncture of the superior sagittal sinus(SSS)under indocyanine green(ICG)fluoroscopic guidance. A 71-year-old woman presented with pulsatile tinnitus and progressive dementia. A left TS-dAVF with retrograde SSS and cortical venous reflux(Cognard type IIb)was demonstrated on cerebral angiography. The left internal jugular vein and distal portion of the right transverse sinus were occluded...

A 70-year-old female presented with a neck mass and sporadic dry cough, often leading to fits of coughing severe enough to cause vomiting. The patient reported that touching the mass triggered the cough. On examination, a 2.5 cm right-sided level two neck mass deep to the sternocleidomastoid was present. Palpation of the mass immediately triggered coughing. Cross-sectional imaging proposed vagal paraganglioma as the chief differential, which was confirmed following surgical excision. The patient reported complete resolution of her severe dry cough after surgery...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Pulsatile tinnitus is experienced by most patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension. The pathophysiology remains uncertain; however, transverse sinus stenosis and sigmoid sinus diverticulum/dehiscence have been proposed as potential etiologies. We aimed to determine whether the prevalence of transverse sinus stenosis and sigmoid sinus diverticulum/dehiscence was increased in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension and pulsatile tinnitus relative to those without pulsatile tinnitus and a control group...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationships between upstream venous sinus stenosis and pulsatile tinnitus (PT), and to assess the correlation with diverticulum growth and the effectiveness of stent implantation METHODS: A patient-specific geometric models were constructed using computed tomography venography images from a patient with PT with sigmoid sinus diverticulum(SSD) and upstream transverse sinus stenosis, in whom stenting of the upstream sinus stenosis alone achieved complete remission of PT...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the outcome and per- and postoperative complications of the surgical management of patients with a persistent stapedial artery (PSA). METHODS: A systemic literature search for reports on patients treated for pulsatile tinnitus and/or conductive hearing loss caused by a PSA was conducted of the PubMed and Embase databases using the terms "stapedial" and "artery." Inclusion criteria were adequate description of the intervention and pre- and postoperative signs and symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SSCD) presents with varying degrees of auditory and vestibular dysfunction. The condition is confirmed on high-resolution computed tomography (CT) imaging, and symptoms are often improved by surgical repair. Although a classic middle fossa craniotomy has been used with good results, recent advances in technique have allowed for modification of the traditional approach into a smaller skin incision and a minimally invasive middle fossa keyhole craniectomy roughly 1...

REVIEW
Bryan K Ward, John P Carey, Lloyd B Minor
Superior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome was first reported by Lloyd Minor and colleagues in 1998. Patients with a dehiscence in the bone overlying the superior semicircular canal experience symptoms of pressure or sound-induced vertigo, bone conduction hyperacusis, and pulsatile tinnitus. The initial series of patients were diagnosed based on common symptoms, a physical examination finding of eye movements in the plane of the superior semicircular canal when ear canal pressure or loud tones were applied to the ear, and high-resolution computed tomography imaging demonstrating a dehiscence in the bone over the superior semicircular canal...

OBJECTIVE: To determine signs and symptoms for superior canal dehiscence syndrome caused by the superior petrosal sinus. METHODS: A review of the English-language literature on PubMed and Embase databases was conducted, in addition to a multi-centre case series report. RESULTS: The most common symptoms of 17 patients with superior petrosal sinus related superior canal dehiscence syndrome were: hearing loss (53 per cent), aural fullness (47 per cent), pulsatile tinnitus (41 per cent) and pressure-induced vertigo (41 per cent)...

Cervical vertebral AV fistulae are uncommon vascular lesions involving abnormal communication between the extradural vertebral artery and surrounding venous structures. We examine the case of a female evaluated in the emergency department with a vertebral AV fistula presenting classically as pulsatile tinnitus and later successfully treated with standard endovascular techniques. A discussion on the etiology, pathophysiology, and management of vertebral AV fistulae follows.

BACKGROUND: Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a systemic, nonatherosclerotic, noninflammatory vasculopathy that is often overlooked by clinicians. Clinical clues could help in selecting patients for further evaluation for the presence of FMD. Recently, it was observed that tortuosity of the coronary arteries is often present in patients with FMD-related abnormalities of the coronary artery. Therefore, we wondered if the presence of coronary tortuosity might provide a clinical clue to the diagnosis of extracoronary FMD...

We report a rare case of aberrant internal carotid artery in the middle ear. The patient was a 30-year-old man with pulsatile tinnitus. MRA and 3D-CTA revealed an aberrant course of the internal carotid artery in the middle ear. 3D-CTA proved useful for radiographic diagnosis, leading to the observation of an aberrant internal carotid artery passing the foramen. We discuss the diagnosis and management of such patients.

BACKGROUND: Aberrant internal carotid artery (aICA) is an anatomic anomaly whereby the internal carotid artery courses through the tympanic cavity without separation by bone. Because aICA is rare, there are no definite treatment strategies for aICA and its complications. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report a case of aICA accompanied by pseudoaneurysm formation and massive bleeding. The patient was a 31-year-old woman with a 2-year history of hearing loss, ear fullness, and pulsatile tinnitus in her left ear...
