Fig. 4. Developmental stages 175 mm (20 week) fetus
Drawings (continued) of developmental stages from a 175 mm (20 week) fetus (Wisconsin series 104: (a) slide 17, section 5; (b) slide 16, section 2); x 6.6.
The stapes is now excavated on the obturator surface of the base (a and b), at the basal end of the anterior crus (a) and in the corresponding portion of the posterior crus (b). However, bone has not yet formed over the eroded area. In the antefenestral portion of the capsule, periosteal bone, which appears in the form of thin larninas, does not extend to the vestibular window. In the latter portion of the capsule the fenestral shell of cartilage is continuous with that which encloses the ﬁssular tract of connective tissue.
The ﬁssular shell of cartilage is becoming detached, at its opposite (or anterior) extremity, from the cartilaginous wall of the cochlea (a). In the region between the vestibule and the cochlea, spicules of intrachondrial bone now are present, having been formed as a result of rapid ossiﬁcation of persistent spicules of cartilage (b).
