Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, New York, USA.

Cartilage-sparing techniques have continued to play a large role in modern otoplasty. Without invasion of the cartilage, the approach has been associated with less risk of skin necrosis, cartilage irregularities, hematoma, and infection. However, refinements are often needed to decrease the incidence of recurrence and suture extrusion. Read More

Implementation of auricular malformation screenings in the newborn population.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2020 Jun 12;133:109999. Epub 2020 Mar 12.

Texas Children's Hospital, Department of Audiology, 6701 Fannin Street, MC 520.30, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Background And Objective: Research has shown that it is important to initiate ear molding early for children with auricular malformations in order to achieve the best results. Currently our institute relies on the traditional primary care physician (PCP) referral system, which does not recognize the time sensitivity of the visit in patients with auricular malformations. The purpose of the current research is to implement a new screening protocol for identifying auricular malformations in the newborn population and thus expedite the clinic visit and necessary intervention.

The Double-reverse Wedge Excision Technique: A Novel Approach to Reconstruction of Stahl's Ear Deformity.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2019 Jul 24;7(7):e2313. Epub 2019 Jul 24.

Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, Garden City, N.Y.

Stahl's ear deformity presents with an abnormal third crus of the antihelix and varying degrees of severity. This paper aims to describe a novel technique for reconstruction of Stahl's ear involving a double-reverse wedge excision of the third crus cartilage and skin, as well as use of Mustardé sutures to recreate the superior crus and Furnas sutures to complete the auricular setback. This novel technique for correction of Stahl's ear deformity produces a more stable aesthetic result versus classic otoplasty with desired auricular setback, minimal reduction in the size of the ear, and limited scarring on the anterior auricular surface.

Repair of the Protruding Lobule.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2020 Jan 10;129(1):63-69. Epub 2019 Sep 10.

Associate Professor and Consultant, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

Background: In this paper, the author describes a novel step-by-step setback procedure for correcting protruding lobules; the success of correcting protruding lobules depends on the nature and severity of the auricular lobule deformity. Although the auricular lobules occupy small areas on either side of the head, protruding or misshapen lobules exert a significant and sometimes exaggerated disfiguring influence on the otherwise aesthetically pleasing appearance of the ears. Because the lobule is a soft structure without a cartilage skeleton, the correction of a protruding ear and lobule is always a challenge. Read More
