Patent Number: 9387070

Patent Date: 2016-07-12

Patent type: utility

A prosthetic element enables the stapes footplate to be connected to the foot of a middle ear ossicular prosthesis. The prosthetic connection element is of biocompatible material and forms part of the foot or is connected or connectable to this latter, and includes a body provided with a flat surface intended to rest on the footplate and having an area sufficient to prevent reabsorption of the footplate osseous tissue as a result of the pressure which the ossicular prosthesis exerts on the footplate. The prosthetic element includes at least two pointed projections projecting from the flat surface and to penetrate the footplate.
