Surgi- cal outcomes and complication rates have been demonstrated to be comparable to traditional microscopic techniques. The surgical outcomes for patients undergoing stapes surgery performed by the Sydney Endoscopic Ear Surgery Research Group are presented.
Study Design: Retrospective review from prospectively gathered database.
Setting: Tertiary referral centers.
