Picture of TORP
(Total Ossicular Replacement Prosthesis)

This patient had a modified radical mastoidectomy for cholesteatoma.  The ossicular chain was completely destroyed, except for the footplate of the stapes.  A titanium total ossicular replacement prosthesis (TORP) was placed over the footplate. 
Right tympanomastoidectomy and ossicular reconstruction, surgeon's view.
The "platform" of the TORP was covered with a piece of tragal cartilage and a temporalis fascia graft. The patient's hearing improved by 40 dB.
