K-Piston Stapes Prosthesis
USED MOST OFTEN WORLDWIDE
One of the most commonly used KURZ Stapes Prosthesis in the world is the K-Piston. Its tested design has set standards for the development of many other generations of stapes prostheses. Numerous scientific studies support, inter alia, the excellent longterm suitability of this prosthesis.
REDUCED NECROSIS RISK
The wide band of the K-Piston, which, due to elaborate processes, is soft and flexible, helps to reduce the risk of necrosis. The loop is spiral-shaped as well, preventing the loop tip and the loop attachment to touch during crimping. Consequently, the K-Piston is also suitable for small incus diameters. In addition, a low material pretension in the titanium loop ensures a dimensional firmness after crimping.
The K-Piston, made of pure titanium with its atraumatic rounded piston end is available in fixed lengths and diameters. The segment between the piston and the loop area is smooth and round minimizing an attachment surface for vibration-damping scar formation.
This product has been developed in close collaboration with the ENT Clinic of Essen University, Germany.
