The pars flaccida of the tympanic membrane has a small role in regulating middle-ear static pressure (Acta Physiol. Scand. 118 (1983) 337; Hear. Res. 118 (1998) 35) and can also modify the response of the middle ear to low-frequency sound pressures by shunting ear-canal volume velocity around the pars tensa (Hear. Res. 13 (1984) 83; Hear. Res. 106 (1997) 39; Diversity in Auditory Mechanics (1997) 129; Audiol. Neuro-Otol. 4 (1999) 129). It has been hypothesized that these two functions can… CONTINUE READING
