Vestibular complaints secondary to a deeply medialized ossicular prosthesis have been documented following stapedotomy1 but infrequently reported following total ossicular replacement prosthesis (TORP) placement. Lateral TORP displacement through the tympanic membrane (TM) occurs in 5% to 9% of cases2; however, medial displacement, with violation of the footplate, is rare and has only been reported following canal wall down mastoidectomy.3 For the below case, institutional review board approval was obtained from the University of Massachusetts Medical School Human Subjects Committee.
