Abstract

A 30-year-old female presented with a ten-year history of bilateral conductive deafness. A pre-operative diagnosis of otosclerosis was made but at tympanotomy, the stapes crura in each ear was found to be disconnected from the foot- plate, the ossicular chain being otherwise normal. A Teflon-wire prosthesis was used to join incus and footplate, with good results. In the absence of a history of trauma or sepsis this may be a late presentation of a congenital stapedial anomaly which has not previously been reported.
