CLIP PARTIAL FLEXIBAL® PROSTHESIS
UNDERSTANDING THE CIRCUMSTANCES
During the healing process, the tympanic membrane migrates to its ultimate position. After the reconstruction of the auditory ossicular chain, the implant can be susceptible to the environmental changes including dislocation which results in the loss of the incoming acoustical signal across all frequencies.
INTEGRATED MICRO BALL JOINT
A Micro Ball Joint is integrated into the head plate of the FlexiBAL. Consequently, the prosthesis can follow the movements of the tympanic membrane and continually align itself managing some of the dislocation effects. In addition, the movable head plate counteracts tension, especially at the annual ligament of the stapes footplate.
STABLE AND CUSTOMIZED
The innovative head plate design allows the surgeon to align the head plate with the tympanic membrane whereas the unique CliP Design provides the prosthesis with stability and standardizes coupling to the stapes head. Both of these benefits ensure an adequate fit of the FlexiBAL.
