Sample text

A diagnosis of spontaneous perilymphatic fistula may be made in such patients. Goodhill [18] proposed the explosive and implosive routes in the pathogenesis of perilymphatic fistula. In the explosive route, high CSF pressure extends to the inner ear, resulting in fistula formation in the oval and/or round window. Conversely, high pressure in the middle ear exerts concomitant pressure on one or both of the windows, producing a fistula or fistulae via the implosive route. 1 Changes in CSF Pressure To examine changes in CSF pressure in daily life, Sakikawa et al.

The mean middle ear pressure during nose blowing was 252 mmH2O. Therefore, the pressure gradient across the cochlear windows is about 150 mmH2O during nose blowing. During sniffing, middle ear pressure is unchanged. These results suggest that nose blowing may be an important cause of perilymphatic fistula via the explosive route, while sniffing is not likely to cause perilymphatic fistula. Rupture of the cochlear windows was observed when artificial perilymph was injected into the subarachnoid ­ spaces of guinea pigs.

The connective tissue of the cochlear plexus seems to be derived from the leptomeninges. To examine communication between spaces in the modiolus and the spiral ligament, Suzuki and Nomura [1] injected India ink under pressure into the modiolus. They found that India ink passed through the canal or channel of the interscalar septum to the upper spiral ligament. The bony channel ends at the margin of the interscalar septum. However, there is some continuation of the channel to the upper spiral ligament.
