Dimensions of the scala tympani in relation to the diameters of multichannel electrodes



Dimensions of the scala tympani in relation to the diameters of multichannel electrodes



Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology 229(3-4): 159-165



Dimensions of the scala tympani were measured at eight different places of 1 3/4 turns of the cochlea, beginning at the round window. Height and width of the scala tympani do not decrease continuously but show enlargements in some places. The diameter of two types of cochlear implants were compared with the mean heights of the scala tympani. The data provide an anatomical basis for the development of cochlear prosthesis, which could be inserted for a longer distance as accomplished hitherto.
