Modelowanie wpływu implantów usznych na akustykę ucha S t r e s z c z e n i e W artykule przedstawiono metodykę tworzenia modelu ucha ludzkiego dla symulacji numerycznej stopnia oddziaływania wprowadzanych implantów usznych na jego akustykę metodą elementów skończonych. Wyszczególniono główne jego zmienne geometryczne umożliwiające dopasowanie modelu do indywidualnych cech anatomicznych układu słuchowego człowieka. Opracowany model ucha umożliwia aplikację różnego rodzaju implantów słuchowych… Expand


Three-Dimensional Finite Element Modeling of Human Ear for Sound Transmission
A three-dimensional finite element model of the human ear that included the external ear canal, tympanic membrane, ossicular bones, middle ear suspensory ligaments/muscles, and middle ear cavity was proposed. Expand
Numerical simulation of the human ear and the dynamic analysis of the middle ear sound transmission
Based on the clinical CT of normal right ear, a 3-D ?nite element (FE) model of the human ear consisting of the external ear canal, middle ear(tympanic membrane, ossicular chain, ligaments, tendons),Expand
Biomechanics of the tympanic membrane.
A detailed survey of the biomechanics and the modeling of the tympanic membrane focusing on the finite element method is conduced and results show a good agreement even if some scattering appears to indicate the need of further investigation and experimental validation. Expand
Human Cochlea: Anatomical Characteristics and their Relevance for Cochlear Implantation
The aim was not to formulate a complete description of the complex human anatomy but to focus on aspects clinically relevant for electric stimulation, predominantly, the sensory targets, and how surgical atraumaticity best could be reached. Expand
Predictions of middle-ear and passive cochlear mechanics using a finite element model of the pediatric ear.
A finite element (FE) model was developed based on histological sections of a temporal bone of a 4-year-old child to simulate middle-ear and cochlear function in ears with normal hearing and otitis media, and results have significance for predicting effects of otitisMedia in children. Expand
Effects of the fibers distribution in the human eardrum: A biomechanical study.
The aim of this work is to analyze the susceptibility of the four quadrants of the pars tensa under negative pressure, to different lamina propria fibers distribution, and the development of associated ear pathology, in particular the formation of retraction pockets. Expand
Acoustic-structural coupled finite element analysis for sound transmission in human ear--pressure distributions.
The results show that variation of middle ear pressure is related to the perforation type and location, and is sensitive to frequency. Expand
Anatomy of the human cochlea – implications for cochlear implantation
Better understanding of structure, function, and regenerative capability is needed to comprehend the nature of electrical stimulation of the peripheral and central nervous system to improve the design of future implant systems. Expand
Morphological and Morphometrical Study of the Human Ossicular Chain: A Review of the Literature and a Meta-Analysis of Experience Over 50 Years
It is concluded that ossicular chain reveals a great variety, and it is proposed that a measurement protocol for auditory ossicles must be widely performed. Expand
Model-oriented review and multi-body simulation of the ossicular chain of the human middle ear.
A 3D multi-body model of the ossicular chain and other structures of the middle ear is described, which might represent a valid alternative to more complex models and might provide a useful tool to simulate pathological/post-surgical/ post-traumatic conditions and evaluate oSSicular replacement prostheses.
