In conclusion, it has been reported that the underlying pathology of pulsatile tinnitus can be detected in more than 70% of patients with objective tinnitus.
The former may occur as a result of temporomandibular joint dysfunction, vascular bruits, swallowing, and other sources of physiologic sounds that are heard by affected individuals; objective tinnitus can be heard by others and measured.
