Özet

Delayed surgical treatment of traumatic hearing loss due to ossicular disruption. Objective: Surgical treatment of dislocation and fracture of the middle ear ossicles is recommended to be carried out within months of the initial injury. Here we present 6 patients with traumatic ossicular injury whose surgery was delayed over I year. We evaluated the clinical and pathological changes that occurred over time and assessed the surgical outcomes in delayed cases. Methodology: Histories of the causative traumas, computerized tomography (CT) and tympanometry findings, pre- and postoperative hearing thresholds, and ossicular damages assessed at the tympanotomies were evaluated.
