Promontory Anchored Incus Replacement Prosthesis

Ossicular discontinuity secondary to an incus deficiency is one of the most commonly encountered problems in middle ear surgery. The technology provides a device to restore hearing to individuals who have a discontinuity in the middle ear sound conductive mechanism. The device addresses a specific problem, which arises often in middle ear surgery. Currently available middle ear prostheses are inadequate to remedy the specific problem of a lateral relationship of the stapes capitulum to the malleus, necessitating a cartilage graft, which has poor sound conductive properties. The technology provides a middle ear prosthesis that solves the problems associated with the lateral relationship of the stapes capitulum to the malleus.
