Soft CliP Stapes Prosthesis
STANDARDIZED COUPLING WITHOUT CRIMPING
KURZ CliP Prostheses for stapedioplasty provide standardized coupling to the long process of the incus without crimping. The flexible band clip gently attaches with minimal applied force. Its spring-type mechanism conforms to multitude incus variations ensuring standardized and secure coupling.
CONTINUOUS BLOOD SUPPLY TO THE MUCOSA
The Soft CliP is made of pure, high-quality titanium. This material possesses impressive long-term biocompatibility benefits. The wideband distributes surface tension to reduce risk of pressure necrosis. Contact-free zones also prevent strangulation of the mucosa and contribute to continuous vascular supply. The contact zones run laterally and medially in the direction of the acoustic signal to optimize the acoustic transmission.
SOFT CLIP HOOK FOR EASY INSERTION
A specially designed Soft CliP Hook (Instrument) helps the surgeon to attach the prosthesis onto the incus with reduced force. As a result, movement toward the inner ear is also reduced.
