Actual bleeding in the subdural or epidural region is even less common with most cases occurring in the epidural space in children in conjunction with blunt trauma and skull base fracture or tectorial membrane injury.
Such a fracture is classified as type I, is considered an impaction fracture of the occipital condyle and is potentially unstable, as the ipsilateral alar ligament may be incompetent; however, if the tectorial membrane and contralateral alar ligament are preserved, sufficient ligamentous support may remain to preserve stability.
A diagnosis of tectorial membrane injury associated with REH, venous perimedullary subrachnoid haemorrhage and compressive oedema of the ventral medulla was made.
In contrast, otoancorin, another hearing-related gene defective in autosomal recessive deafness and known to mediate the contact between the apical surface of sensory epithelial cells and acellular gels of the inner ear and the tectorial and otoconial membranes for proper auditory processing, showed significant increase in the hippocampus after repeated blast exposures [21,43].
4) Bauer proposed that tinnitus is the result of reversible outer hair cell dysfunction and decoupling stereocilia from the tectorial membrane.
There was moderate diffuse cerebral edema and tectorial bleed.
Ligaments stabilizing the atlantoaxial junction (C1-C2 joint), which are shown in Figure 1, include the tectorial membrane, the cranial extension of the posterior longitudinal ligament that limits axial distraction; the alar ligaments, which transfix the dens to the occipital condyles to restrain rotational motion; and the transverse atlantal ligament (TAL), which restricts the dens from impacting the cord in flexion.
nonpolymerized actin, alpha-active myosin, fibrin, and tubulin), these cells have the capacity to move the tectorial and basilar membranes to a frequency of 30 kHz.
2) Posteriorly, the tectorial membrane originates on C2 and extends to the clivus.
