This Surgical Pearl describes a technique for performing an incisionless otoplasty to reduce ear prominence.
This observational study compares preoperative and postoperative measurements of the ears of patients who underwent hybrid cartilage-modifying otoplasty.
This preclinical trial of a rabbit model of electromechanical reshaping of the auricular ear extends previous evaluations to 6 months and refines reshaping settings to assess the feasibility of this technology.
In this contemporary review, the authors discuss anatomy of the external ear, patient evaluation, the evolution of nonsurgical and surgical otoplasty techniques, otoplasty outcomes, and future trends for management of prominent ears.
This Invited Commentary addresses the need for objective evidence of the effect of facial deformities and abnormalities on visual distraction and facial perception.
This observational study of viewers’ reactions to photographs of children with protruding and nonprotruding ears concluded that protruding ears draw more attention than do nonprotruding ears but do not cause a negative perception of personality traits. See also the Invited Commentary by Ishii.
Mehta and Gantous determine whether incisionless otoplasty is a reliable and replicable technique in correcting prominauris.
Yau et al demonstrate that electromechanical reshaping altered the shape of pinnae in intact ears of 18 New Zealand white rabbits. A custom acrylic jig with 2 rows of platinum needle electrodes was used to bend ears at the middle of the pinna and to perform electromechanical reshaping using 6 different dosimetry parameters.
Sadick and colleagues present a new surgical technique for lobule correction in otoplasty.
