Stapes-pyramidal fixation by a bony bar

Stapes fixation caused by an ossified stapedius tendon with normal mobility of the footplate, although rare, should be included in the differential diagnosis of conductive hearing loss with a normal tympanic membrane.

Decision making in patients with natural myringostapediopexy: A study of the contralateral ear

September 19, 2016  |  Viviane Bom Schmidt, MD; Sady Selaimen da Costa, MD, PhD; Leticia Petersen Schmidt Rosito, MD; Neil Sperling, MD; Rodrigo Goncalves Dias, MD

Abstract

To the best of the author's knowledge, no case of a patient with stapediovestibular ankylosis who was also coinfected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) has been previously described in the literature. This report describes the case of a 36-year...

Outcomes following ossicular chain reconstruction with composite prostheses: Hydroxyapatite-polyethylene vs. hydroxyapatite-titanium

June 12, 2013  |  Yoav Hahn, MD; and Dennis I. Bojrab, MD

Abstract

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 reviewed the records of 222 patients-104...

Prediction of stapes footplate thickness based on the level of hearing loss in otosclerosis

August 10, 2012  |  Hadi Samimi-Ardestani, MD; Mohammadtaghi Khorsandi-Ashtiani, MD; Elmira Ghoujeghi, MD; Mohsen Rajati, MD; Mahtab Rabbani-Anari, MD; Aman Ghoujeghi, MD

Abstract

During surgical treatment of a patient with otosclerosis, the probability of success depends in large part on the extent of the surgeon’s experience. Therefore, predicting the preoperative severity of disease may help determine the choice of surgeon based on...

Congenital fixation of the head of the stapes in three family members

August 16, 2011  |  Stephen J. Wetmore, MD and Andrew F.L. Gross, MD

Abstract

We conducted a retrospective chart review at a university hospital on a family that exhibited a rare cause of conductive hearing loss. Four male patients of this family had congenital conductive hearing loss. Three of these family members underwent bilateral ossiculoplasty, a...

Traumatic perilymphatic fistula secondary to stapes luxation into the vestibule: A case report

May 1, 2011  |  Li-Ser Khoo, FRCR and Tiong-Yong Tan, FRCR

Abstract

A penetrating ear injury with a perilymphatic fistula is not an uncommon occurrence in otolaryngologic practice, but stapes luxation is rare. We report the case of an 11-year-old boy who developed a traumatic perilymphatic fistula secondary to an atypical stapes luxation into...

Incus augmentation with glass ionomer cement in primary and revision stapes surgery

December 17, 2010  |  Gediz Murat Serin, MD, Behram Çam, MD, Ufuk Derinsu, PhD, Murat Sari, MD, and Çağlar Batman, MD

Abstract

In stapedotomy, augmentation of the long process of the incus is necessary when the structure is too short or thin or when the bone has been eroded to the point that it is not possible to satisfactorily attach a piston prosthesis to it. One substance that has been used to...
