Before exploratory tympanotomy, it is difficult to diagnose an idiopathic perilymph fistula (PLF) because of its variable presentations. An animal model tube-PLF on guinea pigs was established to evaluate the change of the sensitivity of the cochlea function and the value of the postural audiometry in PLF. A fine polyethylene tube (O.D. 0.6mm) was inserted(More)
—Acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs), which are widely distributed in the mammalian brain, the spinal cord and the peripheral sensory organs, are ligand-gated cation channels activated by extracellular protons. Abundant experimental evidence shows that ASICs play important roles in physiological/pathological conditions, such as sensory transduction,(More)
