Surgery Compared to Masking Device for Venous Pulsatile Tinnitus

Summary

The investigators aim to study whether surgical resurfacing of the sigmoid sinus and jugular bulb will result in elimination of venous pulsatile tinnitus.

Description

Currently there is no known treatments with efficacy for venous pulsatile tinnitus without any pathology. The investigators hope to learn that in surgery, resurfacing of the sigmoid sinus and jugular bulb (acoustic dampening) will eliminate symptoms such as pulsatile tinnitus in patients. The knowledge learned will significantly help treat and alleviate future patients that have pulsatile tinnitus.

The purpose of the study is to examine whether surgical resurfacing of the sigmoid sinus and jugular bulb will result in elimination of pulsatile tinnitus in human subjects.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A nonspecific symptom of hearing disorder characterized by the sensation of buzzing, ringing, clicking, pulsations, and other noises in the ear. Objective tinnitus refers to noises generated from within the ear or adjacent structures that can be heard by other individuals. The term subjective tinnitus is used when the sound is audible only to the affected individual. Tinnitus may occur as a manifestation of COCHLEAR DISEASES; VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE DISEASES; INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and other conditions.

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.

Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
