Theoretically, stapes prostheses belong to the classification of middle ear implants however, due to the wide variety of shapes and procedures, they are grouped into their own category titanium has established itself as the dominant material used for middle ear implants today. In 1956, richards manufacturing introduced the world’s first stapes implant in the five decades since, the richards line has expanded to revolutionize middle ear prostheses through. The goal of this study was to make a review of the patients who underwent ossicular chain reconstruction with titanium prosthesis during an eight-year period in our department a retrospective. This is kurz malleus replacement prosthesis (mrp) by collin on vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.
Object status strength reference safety info bucket handle stapes prosthesis otologic implant titanium gyrus acmi (olympus medical), wwwmedicalolympusamericacom. The stapes prosthesis consists of a nitinol loop and the standard kurz shaft made of pure titanium (astm f67) the flat loop band diffuses the impact of pressure on the incus. Meulemans et al evaluate the efficacy and safety of the kurz ttp-variac system partial ossicular replacement prosthesis in ossiculoplasty. The new nitibond® stapes prosthesis is created by combining the features of kurz clip® stapes prostheses with the shape memory effect of nitinol safe coupling to the incus process.
Passive middle ear implant/prosthesis for stapedioplasty in pure titanium & nitinol clip-designs with contact-free zones reduce risks for necrosis mr conditional. First experiences with kurz matrix stapes prosthesis lecture by dr sebastian rösch, salzburger landeskliniken (salk) austria - at the austrian ent congress 2015 jw player goes here first experiences with kurz matrix stapes prosthesis austrian ent congress, poster: first experiences with the matrix (pdf, 127 kb) »matrix stapes. All patients undergoing ossiculoplasty using kurz prosthesis between 2004 and 2006 were included all patients had minimum follow-up period of one year there were 97 patients in total 65 patients had porp's and 32 had torp's the mean preoperative and postoperative air-bone gaps for the frequencies (500, 1000, 2000, and 3000hz) were calculated. Product information an important evolution of stapes prostheses as opposed to conventional kurz clip prostheses, the nitiflex has a loop made of superelastic nitinol which considerably reduces the attachment force. Consequently, the results of this study suggest that the use of kurz titanium prostheses is a feasible option to augment hearing in paediatric cases involving chronic otitis media this is a significant finding especially in view of the added psychological burden of hearing difficulties carried by the paediatric population.
Conclusions: initial evaluation of the kurz titanium prostheses produced low extrusion rates (none to date) with excellent hearing results, including good high-frequency conduction good visualization and accurate placement were easy to achieve. Title = preliminary ossiculoplasty results using the kurz titanium prostheses, abstract = objective: limitations in biocompatibility and hearing improvement with ossicular chain reconstruction prostheses are addressed with new, lightweight titanium prostheses designed to maximize visualization of the capitulum and footplate regions. Stapes prosthesis and metallic middle ear ossicular chain reconstruction implants: all devices are safe for use in a 15t magnetic field or less with the exception of the 1987 mcgee stainless steel prosthesis. Innovative kurz product designs and materials have set new standards in middle ear prosthetics throughout the world the manufacturing process of our prostheses requires highest precision and quality standards as well as utmost care. Eclipse piston the eclipse nitinol piston is a shape memory design that negates the need for manual crimping the heat activated eclipse has a unique shape memory zone which ensures complete (360º) gentle closure around the incus.

Stapes-prostheses - superelastic nitinol the piston’s hook is usually made of titanium, platinum, ptfe or thermo-reactive nitinol these types of pistons need an additional closing step to fix the hook around the incus this is either done by crimping or heating, dependent on the material nitinol is an alloy of nickel (ni) and titanium (ti. Methods this is prospective study of 97 kurz prosthesis ossiculoplasties, performed by the same senior author (vvr) between 2004 and 2006 all patients undergoing ossiculoplasty using kurz prosthesis between 2004 and 2006 were included. Methods retrospective chart reviews were performed for ossiculoplasty involving kurz titanium prostheses between 2006 and 2009 in the ent head and neck department of the hôpital nord, marseille, france. The purpose was to study the hearing results in patients receiving a kurz titanium bell partial ossicular replacement prosthesis (porp) or an aerial total ossicular replacement prosthesis (torp.
Moved permanently the document has moved here. Stapes prostheses former gyrus - now olympus’ commitment to stapes prostheses began in 1956 with our introduction of the first commercially available stapes implant we have maintained our commitment to research and development in response to surgeons’ interest in. The kurz precise cartilage knife facilitates the cutting of consistently thin cartilage slices, as required for occluding tympanic membrane defects, covering tympanoplasty prostheses, or for reconstruction of the posterior auditory canal wall. Kurz middle ear implants this system provides a range of surgical solutions for tympanoplasty and stapedioplasty procedures the kurz range features.
