A combined morphological and physiological study on the effect of saccus obliteration on the cochlea and the vestibular labyrinth of the rat is presented. Endolymphatic hydrops was successfully induced in 49% of the animals. It was frequently associated with fistulae of the membranous wall and degenerative changes in the organ of Corti and spiral ganglion.
