Survey of Stapes Surgery
Richard J. Bellucci, MD, New YorkTHIS SURVEY of stapes surgery performed in 1960 of the relatively small number of cases performed in that year does not provide for a very accurate statistical study. These are, however, consecutive cases.Early in 1966, all patients who had stapes surgery in 1960 were contacted either by telephone or by postal card urging a revisit for a follow-up examination and audiometry.
