Description

The most common location of involvement of otosclerosis is the bone just anterior to the oval window at a small cleft known as the fissula ante fenestram. The fissula is a thin fold of connective tissue extending through the endochondral layer, approximately between the oval window andthe cochleariform process, where the tensor tympani tendon turns laterally toward the malleus.
