We present a case of a previously undescribed entity, an otic capsule dehiscence at two levels (cochlear--internal canal and cochlear--facial dehiscence) in the context of bilateral Meniere's disease, which was responsible for a CSF gusher during a CI surgery.
It is interesting to note that IP-III cases always have a high volume CSF gusher during CI surgery but meningitis is very rarely reported in these patients (1,11).
Causse et al described two intraoperative anatomic alterations that might suggest to a surgeon the possibility that a stapes gusher might occur: a congenital avascularization of the middle ear and an abnormally anterior insertion of the posterior crus into the footplate.
Air-bone gap in patients with X-linked stapes gusher syndrome.
Afren drillers discovered the Ogo reservoir, Nigeria's largest find in a decade, a field that could well hold almost a billion barrels of oil equivalent, a true West African gusher. The Simrit-2 well in Iraqi Kurdistan is another goldmine (forgive the awful metaphor), that will boost both reserves and production in an area with incredible Cretaceous and Jurassic reservoirs.
Members of the metal band Northwest Royale have formed a new project, Gusher, and will play hard-hitting rock as headliners of a Saturday show at the WOW Hall.

Whether it is talking about one's level of motivation (as if the tank were either full or empty), waiting for motivation (as if it were an annoyingly late 8:15 train), or digging to find motivation (like drilling for a new oil well and hoping for a gusher), motivation is frequently discussed as a quantity.
In the early days of the industry a gusher was cause for celebration; now, with the use of the column of mud fluids to hold back the pressure within the formation, it would be a sign of toss of control The most recent advances in the technique of control of a drilling well, by mud fluid have resulted from engineering studies of all of the requirements of such a fluid together with the application of colloid chemistry.
A gusher! A well unstoppable--stop line with unstoppable.
The Gallup poll, conducted just as the gusher was finally shut off, found a 15 percent increase in feelings of worry and sadness among Gulf residents, compared to a 1.8 percent decrease in anxiety for Americans in non-Gulf states.
What we could see were tragic images of oil-coated shorebirds, sublime satellite photographs of iridescent oil slicks on the ocean surface, and stream-of-catastrophe footage that brought the wellhead gusher onto computer screens around the world.
