This article investigates an effective method with which to reconstruct the tragus and external auditory meatus for microtia reconstruction. The external ear was reconstructed using a delayed postauricular skin flap in patients with congenital microtia. After the first stage of delaying the postauricular skin flap and the second stage of otoplasty with ear framework fabricated from autogenous rib cartilage draping with the delayed skin flap, the third stage involved tragus and external auditory meatus canaloplasty...

OBJECTIVE: Auricular elevation with superficial temporal fascia and skin graft is widely used in microtia reconstruction using costal cartilage. However, in some patients, there has been occurrence of contraction of skin graft, which led to insufficient projection of the elevated auricle and diminished auriculocephalic angle with unfavorable long-term results. In this article, the authors introduce their multiple triangular flaps with zigzag incision to maintain stable projection and natural retroauricular sulcus appearance in auricular reconstruction patients...

Accessory auricles are relatively rare malformations arising from the first branchial arch which contains skin, fat and cartilage. The treatment is usually surgical removal for the cosmetic purpose. We are sharing our experience of utilising the accessory auricle skin as full thickness graft for post.burn reconstruction of the fingers contracture of a child. Even though this type of association is rare, it is an innovative idea following Sir Harold Gilles' principle 'Never throw anything away'.

Microtia is a congenital external ear malformation that can seriously influence the psychological and physiological well-being of affected children. The successful regeneration of human ear-shaped cartilage using a tissue engineering approach in a nude mouse represents a promising approach for auricular reconstruction. However, owing to technical issues in cell source, shape control, mechanical strength, biosafety, and long-term stability of the regenerated cartilage, human tissue engineered ear-shaped cartilage is yet to be applied clinically...

BACKGROUND: Attaining an ideal appearance of the reconstructed ear depends primarily on the fabricated cartilaginous ear framework. Despite the role of eighth costal cartilage, the length of the eighth rib cartilage is difficult to anticipate, and growth of the eighth cartilage is variable. The authors discussed modified methods of fabricating helix and antihelix based on different length of eighth costal cartilage. METHODS: Based on the actual length of the eighth costal cartilage, patients were divided into group A and group B...

Saving the outer ear in burn injuries is a challenging task for the treating surgeon that should not be underestimated. Burns which are initially evaluated as superficial, particularly in this region, often have a tendency to undergo progressive tissue destruction whereby conservative treatment is often no longer sufficient to preserve the skin of the auricle with the underlying cartilage. Various possibilities for saving the ear and for ear reconstruction are described, but in the case of severely burned patients it is often necessary to carry out a quick and relatively simple treatment...

BACKGROUND: A large number of anthropometric studies of the auricle have been reported in different nations, but little data were available in the Chinese population. The aim of this study was to analyze growth changes in the ear by measuring the width and length of ears in a Chinese population. METHODS: A total of 480 participants were enrolled and classified into 1-, 3-, 5-, 7-, 9-, 12-, 14-, and 18-year groups (half were boys and half were girls in each group)...

Total ear reconstruction for microtia is usually accomplished in 2 stages which is known as Nagata technique. After framework fabrication and implantation, the elevation procedure is required as a second step surgery. The authors are introducing a novel material for augmenting projection of rib cartilage framework in microtia treatment.

The objective of the present study was to evaluate the possibility of the application of the cyanoacrylate-based glue for the strengthening of the reconstructed elements of the middle ear and its influence on the regeneration of the cartilaginous tissue. We used the cartilaginous tissue from the auricles of the male California rabbits as a model. The cartilage was destroyed in a standard press. Half of the cartilage thus fragmented was implanted into the left auricle. The remaining part was mixed up with the cyanoacrylate glue and implanted into the right auricle of the same animal...

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common neoplasia in Caucasians with a pre-dominance for the sun-exposed anatomical areas including the auricle. The treatment of choice is surgery achieving an R0-resection status. On the other hand, functional and aesthetic results are of importance. We report a case of 79-year-old Caucasian man with a BCC of the helical rim that was treated surgically using a modified Antia-Buch flap for single stage reconstruction. Article is discussing peculiarities of BCC on the auricle and options for auricular reconstruction...

Extensive subtotal full-thickness auriculectomy defects pose a challenge for the reconstructive surgeon. The posterior island flap (PIF), based on the posterior auricular artery, has been described as a reconstructive option for auricular defects, with reports describing a "pull-through" or "revolving door" technique to reconstruct subtotal partial thickness and full thickness auricular defects. These techniques may result in posterior "pinning" of the auricle. This patient is an 87-year-old male who presented after Mohs excision of squamous cell carcinoma of the conchal bowl, which resulted in a 4x4cm subtotal auriculectomy defect...

BACKGROUND: Post-auricular flaps have proved very effective in the reconstruction of most types of partial auricular defects. However, few reports exist regarding the reconstruction of centrally located perforating defects of the auricle. OBJECTIVES: This paper aimed to describe a one-stage technique including a post-auricular folded flap (PAFF) for reconstruction of full-thickness defects of central auricular sites. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between March 2010 and November 2014, five male patients were treated with this reconstructive technique under local anaesthesia...

Reconstruction of partial ear defects represents one of the most challenging areas within reconstructive surgery of the head and neck. Each case of auricular reconstruction is unique and warrants a systematic approach that accounts for defect size and location, the quality of the surrounding skin, patient preference, and operator experience. In this article, the authors outline different reconstructive approaches for defects of the upper-, middle-, and lower-third of the auricle. The relevant anatomy is discussed in detail...

BACKGROUND: Rib cartilage growth is closely related to age and determines the feasibility and outcomes of auricular reconstruction. Ear reconstruction is performed as early as age 6 in efforts to treat children before school matriculation while allowing for sufficient rib growth. But there is controversy over the optimal timing of microtia reconstruction. This study employs CT imaging and surface scanning to guide the timing of auricular reconstruction in children. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on 6-year-old microtia patients between January 2016 and June 2016...

REVIEW
Deborah Watson, Avram Hecht
Repairing defects of the auricle requires an appreciation of the underlying 3-dimensional framework, the flexible properties of the cartilages, and the healing contractile tendencies of the surrounding soft tissue. In the analysis of auricular defects and planning of their reconstruction, it is helpful to divide the auricle into subunits for which different techniques may offer better functional and aesthetic outcomes. This article reviews many of the reconstructive options for defects of the various auricular subunits...
