This atlas provides a close documentation of the very best booths of the center ear. New microdissection ways were constructed, most significantly anterior microdissection. as well as the tympanic hollow space, this technique permits a right away view into the anterior membrane of Prussak's house, the anterior floor of the tensor fold, and the supratubal recess, parts now not explored prior. The standard and hitherto unknown auxiliary aeration and drainage pathways are proven intimately. Aeration of Prussak's house is documented utilizing either microdissection and serial sections; those pathways from the mesotympanum or from the decrease lateral attic are self reliant of the tympanic isthmus. The pathology as a result of continual irritation at the aeration and drainage routes is additionally documented, and new surgical microdissection equipment for elimination of the tensor fold are defined.
