Fig. 754. Auditory meatus externus from a human fetus 22.5 cm (5th month)

Reconstruction view from above and inside.

(After Harn mar.)

The external acoustic meatus consists of three sections: i. an outer, which corresponds to the primary means of the external auditory canal Kiemehtasche; in it later occurred to hair, glands, and cartilage; second an inner broad, rounded section, which is limited by the tympanum (the ear canal plate, lamina epithelialis meatus), 3rd a small intermediate section located laterally of the plate, and the hair remains drtisenfrei. The ear canal plate is now develops into a roundish, thin, solid disc, which is connected at its upper edge to the far narrower primary ear canal as with a stick. In the 7th Month split this record. The resulting column occurs with the clearing of the outer ear canal in connection with which the definitive ear canal is formed.

Fig. 754. Äußerer Qehörgans, Meatus acusticus extemus von einem menschlichen Fetus von 22,5 cm.

(5. Monat.) Rekonstruktion.. Ansicht von oben und innen.

(Nach einem Modell von Harn mar.)

Der Meatus acusticus externus besteht aus drei Abschnitten: i. einem äußeren, welcher dem primären Gehörgang d. h. der äußeren Kiemehtasche entspricht; in ihm treten später Haare, Drüsen und Knorpel auf; 2. einem inneren breiten, rundlichen Abschnitt, der vom Paukenfell begrenzt wird (die Gehörgangplatte, Lamina epithelialis meatus); 3. einem kleinen intermediären Abschnitt, lateral von der Platte gelegen, der haar- und drtisenfrei bleibt. Die Gehörgangplatte ist jetzt zu einer rundlichen, dünnen, soliden Scheibe entwickelt, welche an ihrem oberen Rande mit dem weit schmäleren primären Gehörgang wie mit einem Stiel zusammenhängt. Im 7. Monat spaltet sich diese Platte. Die entstandene Spalte tritt mit der Lichtung des äußeren Gehörgangs in Verbindung, womit der definitive Gehörgang gebildet ist.
