In brief: Controversial cause

although the labyrinthine artery, which is a branch of the anterior cerebral artery supplies the middle ear, whether prominence of this artery can cause ringing in the ears is controversial.
I would make sure there is not another cause for the tinnitus. such as hearing loss due otosclerosis or hardening of the little bones that conduct sound or some other problem.
