• The wrestler's ear (acute auricular hematoma) is a common problem for physicians treating facial trauma. One method of treatment involves open drainage of the serum and excision of the newly formed fibroneocartilage. This technique provides an outstanding cosmetic result and allows the athlete continued wrestling competition.
