Experiments were performed in 22 fresh human temporal bones to compare the relative acoustic function of three stapes footplate sites for an incus stapes superstructure replacement prosthesis (I-SRP). The three sites evaluated were the anterior, centre and posterior footplates. A new round window (RW) measurement method was used to make the comparisons. A small glass microsphere was placed in the centre of the RW as a target. A Polytec laser Doppler vibrometer was used to measure round window… CONTINUE READING
