Ünal A., Aydemir G., Tezer M., Borman P.

Twenty-two consecutive patients who were admitted to our clinic with the complaint of tinnitus were included in this study (male/female: 16/6; mean age: 48.0.4±15.57 years, range: 24-72). Nine patients had unilateral tinnitus (40.9%) (7 patients in the right and 2 patients in the left), and 13 patient had bilateral tinnitus (59.1%). Pre-treatment and post-treatment tinnitus severity scores were 52.72±21.64 dB and 45.00±22.67 dB, respectively. The decrement regarding the tinnitus severity score was statistically significant (p<0.05). Pre-treatment anpost-treatment tinnitus frequencies were 5221.59±2781.75 Hz and 4727.27±2909.25Hz,respectively. The decrement regarding the tinnitus frequency was marginally significant (p=0.059). Pre-treatment and post-treatment Tinnitus Handicap Inventory scores were 50.09±24.17 and 42.00±23.76, respectively. Pre-treatment and post-treatment Nottingham Health Profile test fatigue scores were 66.66±32.53 and 45.45±36.43, respectively. The improvements regarding those parameters were statistically significant (p<0.001 for each comparison). Pre-treatment and post-treatment VAS scores were 50.09±24.17 and 42.00±23.76, respectively. Pre-treatment and post-treatment SF-36 scores were 66.66±32.53 and 45.45±36.43, respectively. The improvements regarding those parameters were statistically significant (p<0.001 for each comparison) TENS was generally well tolerated.
