The Developmental Pattern of Experimental Hydrops in the Endolymphatic Space
Endolymphatic hydrops in the temporal bones of Ménière’s disease patients was first described in 1938 by Yamakawa  and Hallpike and Cairns . The first successful experimental induction of this condition was by Naito  and Kimura and Schuknecht , who, in separate studies, produced endolymphatic hydrops in guinea pigs through the obliteration of the endolymphatic duct or sac.
