SACCULE

Smaller of the two divisions of the membranous labyrinth, lying in the spheric recess; it is connected with the cochlear duct by a very short tube, the ductus reuniens, and with the utriculus by the beginning of the endolymphatic sac and the utriculosaccularis duct that joins it.

SACCULE: "The saccule ruptured, causing pain and hearing loss."
