Stimulation of the round window (RW) has gained increasing clinical importance. Clinical, as well as human temporal bone and in-vivo animal studies show considerable variability. The influence of RW stimulation on the cochlea remains unclear. We designed a human temporal-bone study with controlled direct mechanical stimulation of the RW membrane to identify… CONTINUE READING
