Animation of Otosclerosis Disease (Growth of Spongy Bone in The Middle Ear)

In otosclerosis (or otospongiosis), a decrease in the sound transmission and hearing loss occurs due to the hardening (ossification) of the base of the stapes bone, which is innermost from the 3 ossicles in the middle ear, which is ideal for stapesectomy operations after the stiffening base has been removed are equipped with Teflon piston or intelligent metal technology (Titanium prosthesisis such as Nitibond®). Teflon piston is the most commonly used prosthesis in otosclerosis surgery. This disase is causing progressive conductive hearing loss due to over growth of spongy bone in the middle ear (abnormal formation of new bone in the middle).

Stapedectomy surgery is the most effective treatment for patients with a certain level of conductive - type hearing loss due to middle ear calcification.

Nitibond® Stapes Prosthesis

"Nitibond Stapes Prosthesis" was produced by Kurz Medikal, a German medical company, to be used for stapedectomy in patients with otosclerosis in the middle ear.

As shown in the figure above, it closes automatically and permanently with heat. During the procedure, instead of squeezing using a metal tool, the laser is used and the prosthesis heated by the laser beam is tightly wrapped around the incus ossicle and closed.

The only difference is that the prosthesis produced with this intelligent metase technology is not laser-tightened; The risk of necrosis in the ossicle decreases because it squeezes the bone from 3 different points, because this prosthesis is obtained from pure titanium, the patient can enter a 7-tes MRI, the product has a 20-year warranty, and it is argued that transmission of sound waves is more than other prostheses.

Indeed, ease of application and shortening of the operation time can be achieved.
