How a Venous Stenting Procedure Helped One Woman Find Relief from Pulsatile Tinnitus


For a decade, Roseanne Miller lived with a "whooshing" noise in her ear. She heard the sound at all hours of the day, every day, and it began to affect her daily life. Roseann, a legal assistant from Brooklyn, couldn't concentrate and had difficulty sleeping. Reading a book or relaxing in a quiet space became too loud for her.

Desperate for relief, Roseann sought help from doctors, who diagnosed her with pulsatile tinnitus. Unfortunately, they told her, there were no treatments available for her condition. Roseann eventually connected with Dr. Athos Patsalides at Weill Cornell Medicine. He found the source of her pulsatile tinnitus and offered a solution: a venous sinus stenting procedure he pioneered in the United States.

Read Roseann's story and learn more about venous sinus stenting, the procedure that quieted the "whooshing" sound in her ear.
