Abstract

The management of stapes fixation using transcanal endoscopic ear surgery is a viable alternative approach. The advantages of transcanal endoscopic ear surgery are improved visualization and illumination of the stapes and oval window regardless of the size and geometry of the external auditory canal. Footplate work and prosthesis placement pose significant but surmountable challenges using transcanal endoscopic ear surgery secondary to the lack of depth perception. Several recent studies demonstrate the efficacy and safety of transcanal endoscopic ear surgery.
