Drs. Patsalides, Dinkin, and Boddu Publish Results of Clinical Trial for Pulsatile Tinnitus

A new paper, “Resolution of Pulsatile Tinnitus after Venous Sinus Stenting in Patients with Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension,” shows that an innovative stenting procedure can alleviate the debilitating whooshing sounds experienced by patients with pulsatile tinnitus. The stenting procedure, designed to relieve the headaches and visual problems associated with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH, also called pseudotumor cerebri), was shown to alleviate the symptoms of pulsatile tinnitus as well.
