Aims. Hearing loss, caused by chronic otitis media or trauma, is very common among military personnel. This study aimed at evaluating the practical results of the application of one type of prosthesis for partial or total Ossicular Chain Reconstruction (OCR) in patients referred to Baqiyatollah Hospital.

Methods. This is a retrograde review of 149 medical records for O.C.R. between 1997 and 2002. The aforementioned prostheses had been used during tympanoplasty as the need arose.

Results. Favorable results were achieved in 85% of all the cases: 91% with the PORP and 56% with the TORP.

Conclusion. The PORP yields better hearing results than the TORP. Hearing results achieved with the PORP in our study are better than those reported in other studies and are comparable to autograft .TORP results in our study are same as those reported by others. In conclusion, in patients with good health status, the said prostheses are recommended for ossicular chain reconstruction.
