OBJECTIVE To study hearing outcome in revision stapedotomy cases where extensive erosion of the long process of the incus was observed in a consecutive series where a malleovestibular prosthesis was used versus a consecutive series where hydroxyapatite (HA) bone cement was used to rebuild the eroded long process of the incus and integrate the prosthesis. PATIENTS Twenty revision cases of surgically treated otosclerosis where extensive incus erosion was observed during revision surgery… CONTINUE READING
