[Temporal rotation skin flap combined with cartilage plasty for correcting cryptotia].

[Article in Chinese]

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To explore the therapeutic effect of the temporal rotation flap combined with cartilage plasty for cryptotia correction.

METHODS:

From January 2009 to June 2012, 8 cases with cryptotia (10 ears) were treated. After complete dissection of the cartilage adhesion, the cartilage was reshaped by suture to restore its appearance. Then the temporal triangular rotation flap was transferred to cover the wound.

RESULTS:

No hematoma, infection or flap necrosis happened. The follow-up period ranged from 3 months to 1 year, with an average of (6.88 +/- 2.85) months. The ear appearance kept stable with no recurrence and inconspicuous scar. Satisfactory result was achieved.

CONCLUSION:

Temporal rotation flap combined with cartilage plasty is a good option for correction of mild or moderate cryptotia.
