Abstract Conclusions: This study revealed that, in the adult population, the final diagnosis of this entity can only be made by combining imaging with clinical tests. Objective: We developed the largest temporal bone multislice computed tomography (CT) scan study so far by including 410 cases to investigate the prevalence of posterior semicircular canal dehiscence in patients with symptoms unrelated to the inner ear. Methods: A prospective study was performed in 410 consecutive adult individuals who underwent temporal bone multislice CT scan examinations. Results: The prevalence of posterior semicircular canal dehiscence was determined to be 1.2%. No superior or lateral semicircular canal defect was detected in these five patients. All cases with posterior semicircular canal defect were male. In two cases the canal was located unilaterally, while in three cases the defects were present bilaterally. Otological examination and audiovestibular tests revealed no abnormal findings in any of the individuals.

Semicircular canal dehiscence is an important entity often presenting with symptoms of noise or pressure induced vertigo, autophony, aural fullness and conductive hearing loss. Due to its varied prese...
The objective of this study was to evaluate the characteristic symptoms of and treatments for lateral semicircular canal dehiscence (LSCD) and posterior semicircular canal dehiscence (PSCD) and its pr...
Initially described in 1998, superior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome (SCDS) has become a well-studied neurootologic entity in adults by now. Unfortunately, experience with children is limited ...
We conducted a prospective longitudinal study of two cohorts of patients who had superior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome (SSCDS); one group had radiographically confirmed superior canal dehisc...
The present study sought to determine whether there is a correlation between the prevalence of superior semicircular canal (SSC) dehiscence (SSCD) on temporal CT and population age. The secondary obje...

Three long canals (anterior, posterior, and lateral) of the bony labyrinth. They are set at right angles to each other and are situated posterosuperior to the vestibule of the bony labyrinth (VESTIBULAR LABYRINTH). The semicircular canals have five openings into the vestibule with one shared by the anterior and the posterior canals. Within the canals are the SEMICIRCULAR DUCTS.
The three membranous semicircular ducts within the bony semicircular canals. They open into the UTRICLE through five openings. Each duct has at one end a sensory area called the ampullary crest. AMPULLARY HAIR CELLS of the crests sense the movement of ENDOLYMPH resulting from rotation of the head.
Preparatory activities in ROOT CANAL THERAPY by partial or complete extirpation of diseased pulp, cleaning and sterilization of the empty canal, enlarging and shaping the canal to receive the sealing material. The cavity may be prepared by mechanical, sonic, chemical, or other means. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p1700)
A pathological condition that is characterized by a host of cranial symptoms, such as headaches, abnormal functions of the eyes and the ears, and psychological and mental disorders. This syndrome usually appears after neck injuries, inflammation, or neoplasm.
A small bony canal linking the vestibule of the inner ear to the posterior part of the internal surface of the petrous TEMPORAL BONE. It transmits the endolymphatic duct and two small blood vessels.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
