• The fine structure of the human endolymphatic duct was observed by transmission electron microscopy. Well-preserved specimens were obtained after fixation of inner ear tissue by perilymphatic perfusion. The morphologic findings seemed to be in accordance with earlier propositions that the human endolymphatic duct may be involved in endolymph resorption. The duct was found to contain otoconialike bodies, suggesting that the endolymphatic duct and sac in man may also play a role in the turnover of macular otoconia.
