Perforation of the globe at the level of the scleral ossicle
was considered a possible cause.
Anatomy of the scleral ossicles
in brazilian birds.
(12 of 15 basal plates, 14 of 20 radial plates) are encrusted by minute, threadlike, calcareous tubes (Fig.

During ossiculoplasty, based on the condition of the ossicles
, there are different methods ranging from minimal applications, such as bone cement or prosthesis applications performed in the absence of ossicles
The team used this approach for the optical measurement of nanometer-sized ossicle
The middle ear ossicles
represented on average 0.0025 % of the bullar volume.
The chemical treatment of fish samples for the recovery of ossicles
was described by us earlier (Marss et al.
They cut the specimens horizontally with a thickness of 24 [micro]m per slice and analyzed them in an interval of 120 [micro]m or 240 [micro]m to evaluate the blood supply of the ossicles
in the tympanic cavity.
Dalal, "Gross anatomy of the interphalangeal joint of the great toe: implications for excision of plantar capsular accessory ossicles
," Clinical Anatomy, vol.
These could have been incorporated at the expense of pathologies which are rarely encountered, such as sesamoiditis and accessory ossicles
. Further, all of the upper limb conditions described involved either the hand or wrist, and carpal tunnel syndrome was (mistakenly) included in the lower limb section.
In chronic cases that are refractory to conservative treatment, surgical intervention yields good results, particularly for patients with bony or cartilaginous ossicles
. Excision of these ossicles
produces resolution of symptoms and return to activity in several weeks (SOR: C, several case series).
