When a surgeon is faced with an inadvertent mobilization of an otosclerotic foot plate, he has two choices. One choice is to attempt to remove the foot plate and take the risk of losing it into the vestibule. The second choice is to terminate the procedure. We present a third alternative, utilizing the Robinson prosthesis on the mobilized foot plate.
