Imaging of carotid artery-cochlear dehiscence. A cause of pulsatile tinnitus
This study was conducted on 8 adult patients. The dehiscences ranged between 0.7 and 1.7mm (average 1.04mm).

In the controls, the internal carotid artery to cochlea (ICA/Ch) distance ranged from 0.59mm to 3.1mm and was 1.618mm in average. The dehiscences were more common in female. However when they occur in males, they tend to be bilateral and seems to be predisposed by excessive pneumatization of both petrous apices. (Source: The Egyptian Journal of Radiolog...
