Product Information

PRECISION STAPES PROSTHESIS LENGTH DETERMINATION

The KURZ Meter is a precision instrument for determining the length of stapes prostheses intraoperatively. Due to its easy handling, it simplifies and standardizes the measuring procedure during stapes surgery.

A scale on both sides allows easy use for right- and left-handed users. The stop hook of the KURZ Meter is applied medially to the long process of the incus. With the aid of a slide the surgeon advances the measuring tip up to the footplate with precision.

Prosthesis length is calculated by adding the measured distance between the process of the incus (medial side) and the surface of the stapes footplate to the depth of prosthesis insertion into the inner ear. The latter is determined by the surgeon. The KURZ Meter can be disassembled into its individual parts for safe cleaning. This facilitates sterilization.

Benefits

  • Easy handling
