Abstract [en]

The surface morphology of 20 human maculae sacculi is presented. Individual data on the total area, shape and the relative area of the pars superior are given. The mean area of 14 adult maculae was (mean +/- SD) 2.35 +/- 0.31 mm2. The ratio between the length and width of the macula was 2.54 +/- 0.28. The pars superior was significantly larger than the pars inferior. The percentage of pars superior was 56.4 +/- 4.7. As regards the shape of the macula, there was a large interindividual variability. The findings are discussed, taking into consideration comparative anatomy as well as spatial orientation.
