  • equilibrium
  • It consists of two anatomically and functionally distinct parts: the cochlear nerve , distributed to the hearing organ , and the vestibular nerve, distributed to the organ of equilibrium. (britannica.com)
  • The sensory endings of this portion of the nerve are in the semicircular canal and in the utricle and saccule, the structures of the inner ear responsible for the sensation of equilibrium. (britannica.com)
  • organ
  • The cochlear nerve fibres end in terminals around the bases of the inner and outer hair cells of the organ of Corti and begin in groups of nerve cells-dorsal and ventral cochlear nuclei-located at the base of the brain at the juncture of the pons and the medulla oblongata . (britannica.com)
  • clinical
  • At week 24, patients with a clinical response or stable disease (together comprising 'clinical benefit') will transition to maintenance therapy with bevacizumab. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • surgery
  • During surgery, simultaneous cochlear implantation will be performed if the cochlear nerve can be identified and preserved during the resection. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Surgical details to be recorded will include date of surgery, surgical time, and whether the cochlear nerve was identified and preserved. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • rare disease
  • Data capture for the NF Registry is being done under contract with PatientCrossroads (San Mateo, CA), a state-of-the-art web-based patient opt-in registry that also performs this function for 250 other rare disease registries. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • cells
  • In conduction deafness, there is interruption of the sound vibrations in their passage from the outer world to the nerve cells in the inner ear . (britannica.com)
