• 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.
