ossicular reconstruction

ossicular reconstruction

generic term denoting a number of surgical techniques to restore the continuity of the ossicular chain from the tympanic membrane to the oval window for sound pressure transmission and, thereby, improved hearing.

Partial ossicular reconstruction in children: a review of 62 operations.
From June 2010 to March 2016, 43 patients were retrospectively evaluated in whom incus defect was detected with intact malleus and stapes during tympanoplasty operation in our clinic and ossicular reconstruction was performed.
2) Goals of tympanoplasty are to achieve a dry ear by eradicating middle ear disease and hearing improvement by closure of any tympanic membrane perforation by grafting and/or ossicular reconstruction.
The decision to delay the ossicular reconstruction to a second stage was made so that we could discuss in detail with the patient the possibilities and risks related to her specific situation.
It is defined as simple surgical repair of tympanic membrane perforation without doing ossicular reconstruction.
Primary ossicular reconstruction is performed for all patients using partial ossicular replacement prosthesis (PORP) or total ossicular replacement prosthesis (TORP) depending on the presence or absence of stapes suprastructures.
Total ossicular reconstruction was performed in a greater percentage of the HATi group (75 of 176 [42.
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the hearing results of embedding the partial ossicular reconstruction prosthesis (PORP) underneath the malleus with the malleus relocation technique and tympanic membrane graft in the presence of the malleus.
For a successful ossicular reconstruction an air filled middle ear and a functioning eustachian tube are important pre requisites.
Nine months later, a second-stage procedure was performed, and a partial ossicular reconstruction prosthesis was placed to rehabilitate hearing.
Ossicular reconstruction had been undertaken with placement of tragal cartilage on top of a titanium partial ossicular reconstruction prosthesis (PORP).
Underlay temporalis fascia grafting was performed without placement of Silastic sheeting but with a plan to perform ossicular reconstruction at a later date.
