Eighty-two revision stapedectomies were analyzed to determine causes of primary and revision stapedectomy failure. The specific cause of failure can often be anticipated preoperatively by analysis of the patient's audiogram, symptoms, type of prosthesis initially used, and the duration of time between initial surgery and the onset of symptoms. Guidelines for performance of revision stapedectomy are discussed.
