Ossiculoplasty is an operation to repair, reconstruct and improve the movement of the tiny bones of hearing in the middle ear. These bones may have become damaged or less mobile due to infection or disease such as long-standing middle ear infection (otitis media), or trauma such as a head injury (Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust).
This atlas is a comprehensive guide to ossiculoplasty with emphasis on surgical techniques and decision making.
Beginning with an introduction to the history and instruments used in the procedure, the following sections explain the latest techniques, patient examination and evaluation, surgical indications, contraindications, and potential complications.
More than 1200 intra-operative images are enhanced by illustrations that clearly identify anatomy and surgical details, and a DVD ROM demonstrating surgical procedures complements the detailed text.
