They need to turn to some experts who can guide them down the tissue pathway and help them with all of their descriptions and marketing materials to make sure they stay on the 'tissue' side of the debate.
This fourth pathway in fibrotic aural atresia is termed the fibrotic tissue pathway of CC (Figure 1(b)).
With regard to the connection between occluding fibrotic tissue and ossicles, the CT scans for subjects 2, 4, 5, and 6 show a substantial connection of occluding fibrotic tissue with the ossicles, implying the presence of a fibrotic tissue pathway.
In the ears with a fibrotic tissue pathway (subjects 2, 4, 5, and 6), the CC thresholds were lower than the BC thresholds at frequencies of 0.
The main hypothesis is supported in that ears with a fibrotic tissue pathway, as determined by the CT scans, showed lower CC thresholds than BC thresholds at frequencies below 2.
Considering the elevation in thresholds for the ear with the lateralized tympanic membrane [21], sound transmission without a fibrotic tissue pathway is not efficient.
The findings of this study identify a factor that has not been considered in previous investigations, that of a fibrotic tissue pathway in ears with fibrotic aural atresia.
An ear in which a fibrotic tissue pathway is present has characteristics that are advantageous with respect to the development of an improved CC hearing aid.
Lanza will discuss the developmental signals that instruct embryonic stem cells to choose a particular tissue pathway.
