The titanium partial prosthesis did not give good functional results. In the case of a limited lysis (< 2 mm) of the distal portion of incus, we use the cement or cartilage interposition. When ossicular chain cannot be preserved entirely, we privilege incus transposition or a titanium PORP. The Martin-Incudo prosthesis seems interesting in the event of lysis of 2 mm of the long process of incus, nevertheless engineering changes are necessary in order to make rigid the incudostapedial joint.
