Term Detail
MP term:abnormal Reissner membrane morphology
Synonym: abnormal membrana vestibularis ductus cochlearis morphology
Synonym: abnormal paries vestibularis ductus cochlearis morphology
Synonym: abnormal Reissner's membrane morphology
Synonym: abnormal vestibular membrane morphology
Synonym: abnormal vestibular wall of cochlear duct morphology
MP id: MP:0006021
Definition: any structural anomaly of the membrane which separates the cochlear duct from the vestibular canal, i.e. the endolymph of the scala media from the perilymph of the scala vestibuli; the Reissner membrane consists of squamous epithelial cells with microvilli toward the ductus, a basement membrane, and a thin layer of connective tissue toward the scala
