The use of synthetic partial ossicular replacement prostheses (PORPs) and total ossicular replacement prostheses (TORPs) in ossicular reconstruction surgery has gained growing acceptance but is not without complication. Dysgeusia, resulting from tension or stretching of the chorda tympani, was noted in two patients who had undergone such reconstruction. The symptoms resolved following resolution of the tension on the chorda tympani.
