What is the clinical, cost effectiveness and safety of neuromodulation interventions for treating tinnitus in adults?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why the committee were unable to make recommendations
There is great variation in neuromodulation approaches reported for tinnitus. Insufficient robust evidence meant that the committee were unable to make any practice recommendations on the use of neuromodulation therapies. They made a recommendation for research on the use of neuromodulation therapies, and noted that evidence of the safety of these techniques for use in children and young people was needed before conducting extensive research of efficacy.
