Regensburg Type Total Prosthesis
OVAL STEM FOR LARGER AREA OF CONTACT
An enlarged oval stem end is the trademark of the Regensburg Type Total Prosthesis. It increases the area of contact with the stapes footplate, and together with a lower centre of gravity ensures good balance and facilitates intraoperative handling.
Small recesses in the head plate indicate the position of the stem. Below the head plate the shaft has a diameter of only 0.2 mm. Consequently, it can be easily articulated to match the tympanic membrane angle.
This product has been developed in close collaboration with Regensburg University ENT Clinic, Germany and its middle ear research laboratory.
