The Bojrab implant line of ossicular reconstructive prostheses has a long history of excellent performance in middle ear surgery and hearing outcomes. As one of the first adjustable titanium prosthesis to offer a titanium shaft combined with a hydroxylapatite (HA) head, the Bojrab style implants have become the popular choice of medical professionals worldwide. The addition of the titanium malleus arm is a favorite among the proponents for saving and using the malleus. The natural progression of creative ideas led to the addition of an integrated footplate shoe for improved stability in malleus to footplate hearing restoration for conductive hearing loss.
