Treatment of auricular hematoma using button technique.

Abstract

10 male patients suffering from auricular hematoma were treated by evacuation of the hematoma followed by suturing two buttons to the ear using through-and-through staying silk sutures, leaving them attached for 1 week. Not a single case of recurrence has been encountered as this technique eliminates the dead space and does not allow reaccumulation of the hematoma.
