What is the success rate of stapedectomy?

A successful stapedectomy is defined as a closed air-bone gap (ABG) of less than 10dB. Depending on the condition for which you are receiving surgery, studies have shown that the success rate can vary between 95% for obliterative otosclerosis and 64.7% for simultaneous malleus ankylosis. 

Pediatric stapedectomy is performed successfully 93.5% of the time, while the success rate for seniors is approximately 94.5%.
