Abstract

Middle ear reconstructive techniques have increased to such an extent that the otolaryngologist is faced with a bewildering number of surgical options. The literature has yet to demonstrate any technique to be optimal in every surgical scenario because of a lack of direct comparisons between techniques and dissimilar criteria for measuring success. This article uses hearing results and the ability to resist extrusion as the principal measures of success. This article provided middle ear reconstructive techniques proven to be successful for commonly faced surgical dilemmas.
