  • lateral
  • Occasionally, malformations associated with the first pharyngeal pouch have been described in the external auditory canal situated lateral to the tympanic membrane [ 3 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • The oblique placement of the tympanic membrane both antero-posteriorly, medio-laterally and superoinferiorly causes its superoposterior end to be more lateral to its anteroinferior end. (wikipedia.org)
  • auditory ossicles
  • Treacher Collins syndrome, characterised by dysplasia of the auricle, atresia of the bony part of the autiory canal, hypoplasia of the auditory ossicles and tympanic cavity, and 'mixed' deafness (both sensorineural and conductive), inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. (wikipedia.org)
  • temperature
  • Tympanic membrane temperature (TMT) was utilized in this study as an index of cerebral activation. (ed.gov)
  • Methods We conducted a study of the diagnostic accuracy of oral, tympanic membrane (TM) and temporal artery (TA) thermometry to measure fever in an urban emergency department (ED). Data were collected from adult patients who received rectal temperature measurement. (bmj.com)
  • thin
  • The tympanic membrane is the result of the final invagination of the first pharyngeal arch which permeates to the mesoderm of the first pharyngeal cleft until it contacts the endoderm of the first pharyngeal pouch leaving between them a thin mesodermal layer. (hindawi.com)
  • alveolar-capillary membrane ( alveolocapillary membrane ) a thin tissue barrier through which gases are exchanged between the alveolar air and the blood in the pulmonary capillaries. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • it is a thin hyaline membrane between the substantia propria and the endothelial layer of the cornea. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • conductive
  • Despite recent technological advances in diagnostic methods including imaging technology, it is often difficult to establish a preoperative diagnosis of conductive hearing loss (CHL) in patients with an intact tympanic membrane (TM). (nih.gov)
  • study
  • The purpose of this study was to examine how these mast cell substances provoke inflammatory changes in the tympanic membrane. (diva-portal.org)
  • Our objective in the present study was to examine the prevalence of various tympanic membrane (TM) abnormalities in otherwise healthy children at the age of 5 years and hearing levels at the age of 6 years in relation to persistent MEE and M&T in the children's first 3 years of life.
