Results of malleostapediopexy.


In the eight years from 1973 to 1980, we performed tympanoplasty on approximately 350 cases, in 50 of which malleostapediopexy was undertaken. Postoperative hearing improvement occurred in 86%. Hearing further improved as compared with that at the third postoperative week occurred in 17 of 31 long-term follow-up cases (55%). Malleostapediopexy proved satisfactory in that it could be applied if the malleus and stapes were intact, it was technically simple, requiring no higher skill, and produced good improvement of hearing.
