There are usually coexisting injuries to the skull base or craniocervical ligaments, most commonly the tectorial membrane.
A diagnosis of tectorial membrane injury associated with REH, venous perimedullary subrachnoid haemorrhage and compressive oedema of the ventral medulla was made.
(4) Bauer proposed that tinnitus is the result of reversible outer hair cell dysfunction and decoupling stereocilia from the tectorial membrane.
MRI is especially critical in determining the integrity of the major ligamentous structures of craniocervical junction including the tectorial membrane, occipitocervical joint capsules, alar ligaments, and transverse ligament [7, 18].
The cochleae were dissected out from the temporal bone, and the stria vascularis, Reissner's membrane, and tectorial membrane were removed [32].

Ligaments stabilizing the atlantoaxial junction (C1-C2 joint), which are shown in Figure 1, include the tectorial membrane, the cranial extension of the posterior longitudinal ligament that limits axial distraction; the alar ligaments, which transfix the dens to the occipital condyles to restrain rotational motion; and the transverse atlantal ligament (TAL), which restricts the dens from impacting the cord in flexion.
[2-4] With their interconnected endoplasmic reticular structure and the presence of numerous contractile proteins (e.g., nonpolymerized actin, alpha-active myosin, fibrin, and tubulin), these cells have the capacity to move the tectorial and basilar membranes to a frequency of 30 kHz.
