Abstract:
 Demonstration of stapedectomy surgery in a 42 year old woman who had a tympanoplasty six months previously.  The surgeon used a technique of placement of and crimping of the prosthesis before disarticulating and removing the stapes.  This has the advantage of helping to prevent subluxation of the Incus and a floating footplate.  Perforating the footplate before removing the stape's suprastructure also allows testing for and easier control of a perilymphatic gusher.   Post-operatively she had a 20 dB closure of her air-bone gap.        View Ear Instrument Course on ENTUSA (dot) Com
