"Tympanoplasty" is used in Wullstein for myringoplasty as well as for ossicular chain reconstruction, which leads to confusion among other classifications in which "tympanoplasty" is used only for ossicular chain procedures and "myringoplasty" is separately mentioned [1, 30].
We conducted a retrospective study to compare the results of ossicular chain reconstruction (OCR) with two types of composite prosthesis: a hydroxyapatite-polyethylene (HAPEX) implant and a hydroxyapatite- titanium (HATi) prosthesis.
We evaluated ossicular chain reconstruction in patients with idiopathic incus necrosis who have conductive hearing loss and an intact ear drum.
KURZ Medical, Inc., offers the [OMEGA] CONNECTOR, an optional modular system, for total ossicular chain reconstruction. Given the appropriate spatial conditions in the oval niche, this optional base provides maximum contact to the stapes footplate and is connected to the prosthesis shaft with a micro ball joint.
KURZ Medical, Inc., offers its new [ohm] Connector, an optional modular system for total ossicular chain reconstruction. It serves as a prosthesis shoe and balances the postoperative movements of the tympanic membrane, to prevent dislocation and improve hearing results in total middle ear reconstruction.
Postoperative hearing results are usually better with a PORP than with a TORP (total ossicular chain reconstruction prosthesis).
KURZ Medical, Inc., has improved its CliP[R] Partial Prosthesis Dresden Type for ossicular chain reconstruction. Meeting the basic demands for a safer, standardized coupling onto the stapes capitulum was the design objective for this lightweight titanium prosthesis.
The ossicular chain reconstruction involved placing the resculpted incus body between the long process of the malleus and the stapes capitulum.
