Clinical conditions have been described in which one of the two cochlear windows is immobile (otosclerosis) or absent (round window atresia), but nevertheless bone conduction (BC) thresholds are relatively unaffected. To clarify this apparent paradox, experimental manipulations which would severely impede several of the classical osseous mechanisms of BC were induced in fat sand rats, including discontinuity or immobilization of the ossicular chain, coupled with window fixation. Effects of… CONTINUE READING
