This otoendoscopic photograph shows the near total tympanic perforation and mesotympahnic structures, including the round window niche, the pyramidal process with stapedial muscle tendon, the facial nerve, the cochleariform process, and ossicular chain.
The presence of pyramidal process was also found in 43% cases by Marshall (7) in 1975.
The lesion had extended from slightly below the level of the pyramidal process to just anterior to the cochleariform process; it did not extend below the level of the umbo.
It appeared that the pyramidal process extended all the way to the head of the stapes.
