Collagen type distribution in the healthy human tympanic membrane
2009 (English)In: Otology and Neurotology, ISSN 1531-7129, E-ISSN 1537-4505, Vol. 30, no 8, 1225-1229 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The differences in distribution of collagen types in the different fiber layers of the lamina propria suggest that the lattice of connective tissue supporting the tympanic membrane is not uniform. Understanding the differences in collagen type distribution and in the physical properties of the individual collagen types themselves may contribute to a comprehensive model of retraction pocket pathogenesis.
