This element of difficulty was successfully overcome, however, when Eichler introduced the method of making celloidin casts of the labyrinth in which the circulation could be viewed in its entirety. But with this accomplished, and with such a complete picture of the blood supply before one, the complicated network of vessels found in the labyrinth of the adult ear is, in many places, very difficult if not quite impossible to disentangle with any degree of accuracy.

The arteries offer the chief difficulty, for
