Use of Tragal Cartilage With the Total Ossicular Replacement Prosthesis

Arch Otolaryngol. 1978;104(4):213. doi:10.1001/archotol.1978.00790040035007

• A method was developed for the use of tragal cartilage and perichondrium with the total ossicular replacement prosthesis. The method involves securing the flat base of the prosthesis in a perichondrial tunnel on the cartilage to stabilize the prosthesis, prevent extrusion, and promote vascularization.
