Heptanol application to the mouse round window: a model for studying cochlear lateral wall regeneration.

OBJECTIVE Identify cells supporting cochlear lateral wall regeneration. STUDY DESIGN Prospective controlled trial. SETTING Laboratory. Human presbyacusis occurs, in part, secondary to age-related degeneration of cochlear lateral wall structures such as the stria vascularis and spiral ligament fibrocytes. This degeneration is likely linked to the… CONTINUE READING
