Product Information

PRECISION LENGTH ADJUSTMENT

 

TTP-VARIO Titanium Prostheses provide the unique benefits of a length adjustable prosthesis system. The patented clamping mechanism within the head plate securely fixates the head plate to the stem. It provides a flexible design enabling prostheses to be sized as short as 0.75 mm (FL). This system satisfies all lengths within two types of prostheses: one for partial reconstructions and one for total reconstructions. Such flexible use makes a significant contribution to optimizing inventory levels.

Precise length adjustments are made with the aid of the TTP-VARIO instrument set.

Developed in close collaboration with Tuebingen University ENT Clinic, Germany.

GOOD TO KNOW

The tension-sensitive annular ligament of the stapes footplate plays a key role in reconstruction of the ossicular chain: If undesirable pretension develops here, it can have a critical effect on postoperative hearing outcome. Short prosthetic solutions as short as 0.75 mm Functional Length are available to minimize risk of unintentional tension.
