Abstract

Successful restoration of the auricle following amputation using microsurgical techniques for reimplantation remains the best reconstructive alternative. In many cases of partial amputation, however, this option may not be technically feasible. Deepithelialization of the amputated part followed by coverage of the ear cartilage using an ipsilateral temporoparietal fascia turn-down flap may allow a single-stage salvage procedure that provides an acceptable final result.
