||Primary source abstract: "The first part of this paper describes the anatomy of the normal human cochlear aqueduct as determined from a study of 101 temporal bones."
||P.314 left column 2nd paragraph: "The cochlear aqueduct, situated in the petrous part of the temporal bone, establishes a communication between the subarachnoid space of the posterior cranial fossa and the perilymphatic space of the cochlea. This communication, patent in 93% of cases [primary source], would explain the impact of intracranial pressure variations on cochlear function, such as tinnitus occurring at high altitude and after ventriculoperitoneal shunting."
