Abstract

Fifty human temporal bones from necropsies were studied, focussing basically on the presence of dehiscences in the fallopian canal and vascular coriiunications between the facial nerve and the surrounding bone. In our presentation we report the high incidence of dehiscences at the oval window (60%) and in the pyramidal segment (54%). The presence of dehiscences in the fallopian canal at different levels in the same temporal bone was a common finding.
