Ossiculoplasty with autologous incus and autologous cortical bone: A retrospective analysis
To compare and analyse the outcome of ossiculoplasties with autologous incus and autologous cortical bone.
Materials and Methods: Patients between the age group of 15 to 60yrs with a history of chronic suppurative otitis media with moderate conductive hearing loss(>35dB), who underwent ossiculoplasties with either autologous incus or autologous cortical bone from 2015 to 2017 were included in the study. The outcomes in terms of Graft uptake, the formation of retraction pockets, hearing improvements and rate of recurrence were analysed and included for a period of 6months post-surgery.
Results: A total of 42 patients with ossicular chain dysfunction were included in the study, in which 24 patients underwent ossiculoplasty with autologous incus and 18 patients with autologous cortical bone. Post operatively hearing evaluation by Pure Tone Audiometry was done after 6months, which showed similar improvement in both groups. Complications and extrusion rate were also absent in both the groups.
Conclusion: There is no significant difference in the outcomes following ossiculoplasties with autologous incus or autologous cortical bone in terms of graft uptake rates, the formation of retraction pockets, recurrence rates and hearing improvements.
