The middle ear contains the smallest bone in the human body. It’s called the stapes (stirrup)and is 0.1 inch long. It is linked by tiny joints to two other bones called the malleus (hammer) and the incus (anvil). The common names in brackets indicate their shape. These three bones are instrumental in conducting sound to our inner ear. They are delicate and fragile. Treat them with respect.
