Ossiculoplasty prognosis : the spite method of assessment.
Politzer Society. Annual congress. Maastricht (NLD), 1991/06.
A series of 535 ossiculoplasties were studied to determine statistically significant links between the presence of presenting preoperative clinical features and adverse audiologic results, in order to identify those aspects of case presentation that indicate a good or poor prognosis.
Analysis by chi-square testing has identified twelve features classified as surgical, prosthetic, infection, tissue, and eustachian (SPITE) factors.
Regrouping the significant features has demonstrated their value in predicting accurately an ossiculoplasty prognosis.
