To establish better contact and improved resistance to slippage or tilting of the prosthesis, the KURZ® AERIAL total and BELL partial prostheses can be wedged under the malleus handle. A groove can be bent into the headplate of the KURZ® middle ear prostheses (except for the TTP-VARIAC® and TTP™-VARIO System), in which the manubrium will lie.
The procedure is significantly facilitated by using this instrument, while at the same time the other parts of the prosthesis are protected from accidental bending.
It should be noted that the prosthesis length required with the inclusion of the malleus handle cavity must be about 0.75 mm greater than it would be with an unchanged headplate.
