Product Information

PRESERVING THE ORIGINAL STRUCTURES

One of the challenges of middle ear surgery is to preserve as much of the original structures as possible. When recommunicating the incus and stapes from discontinuity, preserving the native ossicles from progressive atrophy in a neutral position are important design configurations.

The Angular CliP bridges the incudostapedial joint with the aid of two mechanisms: The CliPs springloaded foils produce a secure atraumatic fit while two titanium bands are crimped to the remaining incus long process. This type of reconstruction creates a bridge for the incoming acoustic signal. Its design pays particular attention to ligamental stress with its neutral fit. Cartilage may be draped on the prosthesis laterally to protect the tympanic membrane.

Developed in close collaboration with K. B. Hüttenbrink, MD University of Cologne, Germany.

Benefits

  • Secure fit
  • Creates a bridge for the incoming acoustic signal
