Abstract

A retrospective study of 73 consecutive stapedotomies is reported. The technique of reversal of steps was achieved in 59% of cases. Closure of the air-bone gap to within 10 dB was achieved in 84% of the reversal group, and 81% of the standard technique group, with no statistically significant difference between the two groups.
