Perilymphatic Fistulas: State of the Art-Reply This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract In Reply.—It is a privilege to respond to Morris's communication concerning the state-of-the-art article on perilymphatic fistulas. His statements are clear and accurate. The diagnostic difficulties concerning perilymphatic fistulas are the catalysts for interest in, and investigation of, this topic. They are also the reasons that my colleagues and I embarked on our histopathologic temporal bone studies. With these studies, we, in effect, test the sensitivity and specificity of the diagnostic criteria that were detailed in the article. Our studies have continued since its writing, and I am pleased to report that the results thus far are still highly positive. However, the study is ongoing; therefore, we cannot express our final conclusions. We hope to be able to do this within the next year. I agree with Morris that there is a distinct need for an objective method for the identification of perilymph. This need is also recognized by http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery American Medical Association
