According to South African Hearing Institute, Gauteng Department of Health and Prof Tshifularo,” We will use titanium for this procedure, which is biocompatible. We use an endoscope to do the replacement, so the transplant is expected to be quick, with minimal scarring. 3D- printed total middle ear transplant also aims to simplify the reconstruction of ossicles during middle ear procedures, such as ossiculoplasty and stapedectomy in order to increase the chance of success with minimal intrusion trauma”.
