Abstract

Prominent and normal ears differ in three ways: absence of the antihelix fold, increased angle between the mastoid bone and the concha which produces the prominent effect, and hypertrophy of the concha, with macrotia as a result. These abnormalities are not always present together. According to Stenstrom's studies on the tendency of the cartilage to curl, once the perichondrium has been scratched on one side, a method which corrects the different defects simultaneously is described. The surgical procedure is simple and it creates a natural auricle, adherent to the mastoid. No cartilage resection is necessary, so that the surface remains smooth.
