To analyze the nature of ossicular erosion and classify the remnant ossicles to be used for ossiculoplasty. Patients between 12 and 60 years of age with a history of ear discharge with moderate conductive deafness (>40 dB HL) were included in the study. The patients were assessed of ossicular erosion by new classification of ossicular status which included remnant ossicles (M=Malleus, I=Incus, S=stapes, + =present, - =absent, p=partially eroded). Out of 42 cases studied, Incus is always eroded partially or completely in equal cases. Suprastructure of stapes is next common to be eroded in nearly 75% of cases. Malleus was undisturbed in 50% of cases. Malleus handle was the least part to get eroded. New classification of ossicular status is needed for in cases undergoing ossiculoplasty for documentation and better representation of disease process.
