Abstract

The purpose of this study was to summarize the results achieved by patients with tinnitus and/or hyperacusis during the Tinnitus Retraining Therapy. One hundred cases, out of 516 patients registered until January 1999 at the Tinnitus and Hyperacusis Management Clinic, Warsaw, Poland, were examined. The patients have been treated for at least 10 months but not longer than 1 year. A questionnaire specially prepared for this program was used to assess the results. In the group of 100 cases, the results after a minimum of 10 months' therapy are different in each category but they show a significant improvement in about 70% of cases.
