The Effect of Tinnitus Retraining Therapy on Chronic Tinnitus: A Controlled Trial

This article discusses a study on tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT) and its effectiveness in reducing tinnitus's severity and negative impact. The study involved 39 participants who were divided into two groups, one receiving TRT and the other receiving standard-of-care (SC) treatment. The results showed that both groups experienced a significant decrease in tinnitus severity over the 18-month study period, with the TRT group showing a greater improvement than the SC group. However, the study also highlighted the challenges and controversies in data interpretation in clinical trials, particularly about the intention-to-treat (ITT) analysis. Overall, the study suggests that TRT and SC treatments effectively reduce tinnitus severity, but further research is needed to understand the most effective treatment approach.

In summary, this study investigated the effectiveness of tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT) in reducing tinnitus severity and its negative impact.

However, the study also highlighted the challenges in data interpretation in clinical trials, particularly about the intention-to-treat (ITT) analysis. Overall, the study suggests that TRT and SC treatments effectively reduce tinnitus severity, but further research is needed to understand the most effective treatment approach better.
