Abstract

The position of the external ear predisposes it to both traumatic injury and malignancy. The intricate anatomy of the auricle, with its multiple concave and convex surfaces, makes reconstruction challenging. This article explores methods of auricular reconstruction for otohematoma, lacerations, lobule tears, avulsion injuries, and a variety of oncologic defects. Reconstruction techniques focus on restoration of both form and function with an esthetically pleasing result.
