Retraction Pocket With Ossicular Erosion

Description : This large posterior retraction pocket lies directly on top of the head of the stapes, a condition which is termed "a natural myringostapediopexy".

Note how the end of the long process has been eroded, with only a fibrous band attaching the incus to the stapes. The middle ear is aerated.
