Mononuclear phagocytes migrate into the murine cochlea after acoustic trauma.

Abstract

Acoustic injury results in destruction of hair cells and numerous nonsensory cells of the cochlea. How these injured structures undergo repair is not well understood. This study was designed to examine the cochlea for the presence of mononuclear phagocytes after tissue injury caused by noise damage. We used octave band noise (8--16 kHz) at three levels (106… (More)
