1. The healthy ear drum is visualized through the ear canal.

2. Incision in the ear canal allows the ear drum to be elevated. The chorda tympani nerve is seen. The ossicular chain including the malleus, incus, and stapes is intact. However, the surgeon gently touches the stapes and confirms it is stuck.

3. The stapes is removed with a laser and the oval window is visualized. 

4. The oval window is gently opened with a laser.

5. The stapes piston to be implanted is shown here.

6. The piston is placed into the opening in the round window and hung on the incus.
