Vascular permeability of the stria vascularis in experimental endolymphatic hydrops

Acta Otolaryngol Suppl. 1991;481:179-81. doi: 10.3109/00016489109131375.

Abstract

Vascular permeability of the stria vascularis was morphologically examined in hydrops animals, using the tracer method of horseradish peroxidase (HRP). The reaction product of HRP was observed in the capillary of the stria vascularis, not outside of it. The finding suggests that the vascular permeability of the stria vascularis is unchanged in Kimura's hydrops model.
