Cauliflower ear prevention. (Product Marketplace).

Auricular hematoma is an injury that can lead to cauliflower-ear deformity if inadequately treated. Various methods of treatment have been used over the years, but most involve bulky pressure dressings or are only partially successful. EARFXR TM is a simple device consisting of thermoplastic splints that are softened in hot water, molded to the auricular convolutions, and held in place for a few days with through-and-through 3-0 nylon sutures. As no padding is used, it is cosmetically acceptable and may even be worn in the shower.
