Abstract

Ossicular chain reconstruction is most commonly performed for an absent or diseased incus. Reestablishing continuity by placing a strut prosthesis between the stapes capitulum and malleus handle minimizes the possibility of extrusion and displacement. Strut prostheses are made of hydroxyapetite, which is a highly biocompatible material that bonds to living bone.
