INTRODUCTION: Chronic supprative otitis media of unsafe type as its common presenting future can produce hearing disability. The hearing defect usually occurs due to ossicular interruption.In the past, very many types of bio materials and alloplastic prostheses were used for ossicular reconstruction. The end result of bio materials and alloplastic prostheses regarding stability of hearing is inferior to that of auto or homograft ossicles. So there is immense demand to have an ossicular bank with auto and homograft ossicles. In this prospective study, we used femoral cortical bone homo graft ossicle for ossicular reconstruction. Long term result has to be tested in time future. AIM OF THE STUDY: A comprehensive study of ossicular chain reconstruction with femoral cortical bone homograft. To analyze the stability of femoral cortical bone homograft . To analyze the hearing improvement with femoral cortical bone homograft SUMMARY & CONCLUSION: This study of ossicular reconstruction was conducted in our ENT Department, GRH, Madurai in twenty case of CSOM. We found femoral cortical bone homograft is having very good stability. Hearing improvement is good with femoral cortical bone homograft.
