The absence of the malleus handle can affect hearing results after ossiculoplasty. To enhance middle ear prosthesis stability, recreation of an absent malleus can be important.
In close conjunction with Robert Vincent MD from Beziers, France (Causse Ear Clinic), KURZ has developed a new concept of Tympanoplasty.
The MRP (Malleus Replacement Prosthesis) is a pure titanium neo-malleus which is implanted underneath the tympanic membrane at any position in the external ear canal. It is attached via a Y-shaped titanium wire with two hooks. These hooks are inserted into two holes, which are drilled with a 0.6 mm burr. The surgeon inserts the MRP and connects almost any Partial- or Total-Replacement Prosthesis due to the malleable MRP.
The primary advantage of this new concept is to keep the neo-malleus in proper position during the initial healing period, reducing the risk of tilting.
Due to registration policies, not all products are currently available in some countries.
