Aims: To evaluate the prognostic value of Ossiculoplasty Outcome Parameter Staging (OOPS) index with reference to the audiological outcome in the patients undergoing ossiculoplasty. Study Design: A prospective study. Setting: A tertiary referral hospital. Subjects: The study comprised 118 patients suffering from chronic otitis media with or without cholesteatoma. Materials and Methods: Ossiculoplasty was done by autologous incus interposition, partial ossicular prosthesis, and total ossicular prosthesis. Temporalis fascia graft was used for myringoplasty in all the patients. When partial ossicular replacement prosthesis or total ossicular replacement prosthesis was used a thin slice of cartilage was interposed between graft and prosthesis. The mastoidectomy was performed when needed, and whenever possible, a canal wall-up procedure was performed. Results: The short-term (measured after 3 and 6 months of surgery) and long-term (measured at 1 and 2 years after surgery) outcome of ossiculoplasty measured as a relationship between mean audiological gain and OOPS index score had a statically significant difference. Conclusion: The OOPS index is an appropriate prognostication index to predict accurately both the short- and long-term outcome of ossiculoplasty.
