6 Possible Causes for Plastipore

  • Stapedectomy

    For ossiculoplasty, a plastipore total ossicular replacement prosthesis was used in 17 patients, homograft ossicle in 2 patients, and Teflon piston in 6 patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ear Surgery

    Plastipore should be used only as a bridge between two ossicles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Plastipore TORPs were implanted in two ears undergoing revision surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] masses of giant cells were seen in the implants and many cells had engulfed both the vitreous carbon material of Proplast and the white Teflon material of both Proplast and Plastipore[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atrophic Rhinitis

    We implanted Plastipore, a high-density polyethylene sponge with micropores, which enables tissue ingrowth, anchoring the implants to the surrounding tissue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Volume reduction Plastipore implantation Porus material allows tissue ingrowth. Implants shaped then fenestrated for ingrowth.[slideshare.net] Goldenberg, Danino, Netzer, Joachims (2014) “Plastipore implants in the surgical treatment of atrophic rhinitis: Technique and results.”[esciencecentral.org]

  • Tympanoplasty

    Polycel and plastipore 8. Capcel - Hydroxyapatite 9.[archive.org] Composite prosthesis has two distinct portions: a Hydroxyapatite head and a plastipore or fluoroplastic shaft.[archive.org] The plastipore shaft is manufactured in such a way that it can be precisely trimmed to within a 0.5 mm variance on the basis of intraoperative measurements.[archive.org]

  • Tympanosclerosis

    For ossiculoplasty, a plastipore total ossicular replacement prosthesis was used in 17 patients, homograft ossicle in 2 patients, and Teflon piston in 6 patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Osteomyelitis of the Petrous Bone

    Ossicular replacement prostheses – Now usually synthetic (Proplast, Plastipore). May be partial ossicular replacement prosthesis (PROP) or total (TORP).[radnotes.co.nz]
