Abstract

Objective: To describe our experience with endoscope-assisted stapedotomy in a patient with congenital absence of stapes.

Patient: Female patient with bilateral congenital absence of stapes.

Intervention: Endoscopic stapedotomy.

Results: The patient recovered well with closure of air-bone gap on pure-tone audiogram postoperatively.

Conclusion: A rare case of congenital absence of stapes managed by endoscopic-assisted surgery is presented. The aetiology of this condition and the relative benefits of using the endoscope in such cases of congenital middle ear malformation are discussed.

Keywords: Endoscopic Stapedotomy; Congenital Absence; Stapes
