Prostheses for Otology

  • Grace Medical ALTO Byte

    In some cases the surgeon desires a firmer grip on the stapes.  Traditional partial cups rely more on tension between the prosthesis and ear drum to accomplish ossicular continuity and thus improved post-op hearing results.  The ALTO Byte features extended legs which provide additional overall stability when placed on the stapes.  The prosthesis utilises Grace Medical’s patented ALTO adjustment system, offering a size range of 2.0mm-5.60mm.  This implant can be adjusted within this size range without being crimped.

    Benefits:

    • Provided in ALTO Adjuster for ease of sizing
    • One prosthesis needed for each case (reduced inventory)
    • Extended legs provide additional support on the stapes
    • Minimum force needed to place or remove prosthesis
    • Titanium light weight design.
