Angular Piston Stapes Prosthesis
SECURE COUPLING IN SPITE OF EROSION
In otosclerotic cases with advanced erosion of the long process of the incus, coupling of a conventional stapes prosthesis is often not possible. This can be observed in particular in connection with revision surgery, after stapedectomy or stapedotomy.
TWO TITANIUM BANDS AS CLAMP
In such cases, the Angular Piston provides a simple form of coupling: Its two titanium bands are crimped around the shortened process of the incus, fixing the implant in place while the shaft of the prosthesis is inserted into the vestibule in a customary way.
TRIED AND TESTED IN ALL FREQUENCY RANGES
The Angular Piston provides excellent sound transmission due to its design and the material properties of titanium. Low mass and high rigidity are particularly beneficial also in the high frequencies.
