This textbook outlines a step-by-step approach to external ear reconstruction. It explains a generic technique for reconstruction, consisting of two-stage autologous ear reconstruction involving the reproduction of the missing contours and creation of the retroauricular sulcus, then reconstruction for microtia and traumatic injury. Discussion includes congenital malformations, acquired defects, secondary cases due to unsatisfactory ear reconstruction, complications, auricular prosthesis, minor anomalies, and aesthetic variations. Online access to an ebook and videos is included. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
