    What is Stapedectomy|

    A stapedectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure designed to address hearing loss resulting from stapes bone damage or sclerosis within the middle ear. This surgical intervention entails complete removal of the affected stapes bone and the insertion of a prosthetic device that replicates its function, thus restoring the patient’s auditory capabilities.

    Otosclerosis, a condition characterized by abnormal bone tissue formation around the stapes, leading to its immobility and an inability to amplify sound waves, is the primary indication for a stapedectomy. This ailment manifests as a gradual decline in hearing acuity, affecting one or both ears.

    Given the gradual onset of hearing loss due to otosclerosis, individuals often may not recognize the issue or seek medical attention until the condition has significantly advanced, complicating the treatment process. Therefore, it is imperative for those experiencing any hearing difficulties to promptly consult an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist.

    Procedure of Stapedectomy treatment?

    For mild cases of otosclerosis, most ENT surgeons generally recommend a “watchful waiting” approach or suggest the use of hearing aids. While hearing aids cannot reverse the damage caused by otosclerosis, they can help enhance the patient’s hearing ability as the condition progresses.

    Stapedectomy surgery often utilizes local anesthesia, making it an outpatient procedure and reducing the risk of complications associated with general anesthesia. In this procedure, an ENT surgeon creates a small incision in the eardrum to access the middle ear space. The affected part of the stapes bone is then removed, and a prosthetic device is inserted to restore hearing function.

    The incision is carefully closed with sutures to secure both the eardrum and the prosthetic device, aiding the patient’s recovery post-surgery. Typically, the entire procedure lasts between 90 minutes to 2 hours.
