Ossiculoplasty is performed on those patients who have a problem with their ossicles. These small bones situated in the middle ear. Damage to the ossicles can cause hearing loss and the bones may get ruptured with time leading to other problems as well.
The symptoms and causes of ossicle damage go hand in hand. Ossicle damage isn't a disorder in itself and it only happens if there is some major injury or there is an associated disease in the middle ear or the tympanic membrane. Ossicle damage shares its symptoms with other ear diseases or disorders.
This surgery is basically performed to reconstruct the ossicles that are present in the middle ear. Patients who visit the hospital for getting this surgery done often suffer from conductive hearing loss, which is confirmed by doing Audiometry.
This surgery helps in conductive hearing loss and can show great results if performed correctly.
