Stapedectomy

Otosclerosis is a condition characterized by abnormal bone growth in the middle ear, specifically the tiny stirrup bone (stapes). This can lead to progressive hearing loss as the bone becomes fixed and unable to vibrate properly. At Emirates Hospitals Group in Dubai, we offer specialized care and advanced treatments to manage otosclerosis effectively.

Procedures for Otosclerosis Treatment

Treatment for otosclerosis aims to improve hearing and may include:

  • Stapedectomy: A surgical procedure where the stapes bone is replaced or modified to restore hearing. This is often performed under local or general anesthesia.
  • Stapedotomy: A minimally invasive alternative to stapedectomy, where a tiny hole is made in the footplate of the stapes to improve its movement.

Symptoms of Otosclerosis

The symptoms of otosclerosis may include:

  • Gradual Hearing Loss: Difficulty hearing low-pitched sounds and conversations, often starting in one ear and progressing to both.
  • Tinnitus: Ringing or buzzing noises in the ear.
  • Dizziness: Occasional feelings of vertigo or imbalance, especially when hearing loss is severe.

Diagnosis of Otosclerosis

Diagnosing otosclerosis involves:

  • Audiological Testing: Conducting hearing tests to assess the extent and nature of hearing loss.
  • Physical Examination: Examination of the ear using an otoscope to look for signs of middle ear abnormalities.
  • Imaging Studies: CT scan or MRI to visualize the middle ear structures and detect any abnormal bone growth.

Recovery Process After Otosclerosis Treatment

The recovery process typically involves:

  • Hospital Stay: Patients may stay in the hospital for a short period post-surgery for monitoring and initial recovery.
  • Post-operative Care: Instructions on wound care, pain management, and restrictions on physical activities.
  • Hearing Rehabilitation: Gradual improvement in hearing over time, with follow-up appointments to monitor progress and adjust hearing aids if necessary.
