STABILITY FOR A LONG-LASTING OUTCOME
Postoperative movements of the tympanic membrane can have a negative effect on the optimal position of a middle ear prosthesis. Invasive disease and anteriorly positioned malleus add to the degree of difficulty to reconstruction. One of the aims of ossicular chain reconstruction is consequently to create a stable reconstruction minimizing the risk of tilting of the prosthesis.
SIMULATES AN ABSENT MANUBRIUM OF MALLEUS
The Malleus Replacement Prosthesis delivers an innovative concept which may considerably improve reconstruction instability of prostheses by creating an accessible lateral platform for implants to couple to. The adjustable Y link can be optimally positioned to the bony rim of the auditory canal.
WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS
The MRP stabilizes and secures a partial or total reconstruction and counteracts dislocation, especially during the initial healing phase. It can be used in conjunction with a large number of KURZ prostheses. Ideally, it is suited to interface with the Malleus Notch Prosthesis or the Cavity Bending Pliers (Instrument). The latter can easily be used on various KURZ prosthesis head plates.
