The Dornhoffer Footplate Shoe is a light-weight titanium platform with a cylindrical opening to accommodate the distal end of all Grace Medical Total prostheses. During surgery, the footplate shoe is placed onto the stapes footplate and, ideally, locked in position between the remnants of the anterior and posterior crura, creating a wider base of contact with the footplate than the TORP alone. The shoe is designed to promote centering of the prosthesis on the stapes footplate. The Dornhoffer Footplate Shoe creates a more secure connection of the Total prosthesis to the footplate and helps to prevent prosthesis slippage.
