Conventional Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Tinnitus Treatment (MagTIN)

To assess repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in patients with chronic tinnitus.

  1. Tinnitus Talk
    The objective of the investigators study is to assess conventional repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in patients with chronic severe tinnitus. A randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled procedure, with four increasing levels of magnetic "pseudo-dose" has been designed, in order to characterize the effectiveness of rTMS while controlling its safety and tolerability. By combining various rTMS protocols with a twelve-month follow-up, and using an effect modeling, the study aims at: (i) specify the effective values of rTMS parameters, with an adequate tolerance; (ii) determine the expected benefit and the persistence of effect; (iii) assess the practical feasibility of this kind of therapeutic management.
