PMID:  449516     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A short review of past techniques and materials used in treating the totally disabled middle ear is presented. Basic principles to be observed in management of this problem are discussed and the method of middle ear rehabilitation using the double layer Silastic technique is introduced. Cases (231) are reviewed with comments on the functional results achieved. It is concluded that a reliable total ossicular replacement prosthesis has yet to be produced.
