Naturally occurring myringostapediopexy frequently results in minimal hearing loss and is asymptomatic.
A previous study conducted by our group found that 53% of the patients with myringostapediopexy (defined by Costa et al (5) as a retraction limited to the postero-superior region, in which there is erosion of the long process of the incus and fixation of the affected TM to the head of the stapes) presented with an air-bone gap [less than or equal to] 25 dB at all frequencies.
Still, the decision of how, and especially when, to intervene surgically in a patient with a dry myringostapediopexy should take into consideration at least three important clinical aspects, and the functional result is only one of them.
With these concepts in mind, the objective of the present study is to describe the clinical findings in the CLE in a series of patients with myringostapediopexy.
Patients were included if they had a natural myringostapediopexy detected via video-otoscopy (figure 1).
For the statistical comparison of the air-bone gap between the myringostapediopexy and the CLE, the Student t test was used.
