Abstract

A Tinnitus Objectivization: How We Do It

Author(s): Dunja Milicic and Manuel N.M.P. Alc;ada

The medical therapy of tinnitus should be oriented by objective measurement of the disorder. Preferably, it should be qualitative, indicating the exact neural mechanism to be neuromodulated by neuroprotective medication. The neurophysiological approach in objectivization of tinnitus is presented by means of auditory brainstem response and middle latency response. These tests could be applied in functional follow-up of medical therapy, as these are more sensitive and harmless methods as compared to standard morphological methods.
