Clinical, experimental, and theoretical investigations of the effect of superior semicircular canal dehiscence on hearing mechanisms.

Abstract

HYPOTHESIS A superior semicircular canal dehiscence affects hearing by introducing a third window into the inner ear that 1) lowers cochlear input impedance, 2) shunts air-conducted sound away from the cochlea resulting in conductive hearing loss, and 3) improves bone-conduction thresholds by increasing the difference in impedance between the vestibule and… (More)
