Abstract

Among the options for the reconstructive surgeon in repairing an auricular defect, prosthetics are often not strongly considered due to unfamiliarity with benefits and outcomes. In many patients who are poor surgical candidates or who do not wish a multistaged reconstruction, auricular prostheses can be an excellent option and should be discussed when counseling patients. Osseointegrated implant-retained prostheses are becoming more popular given the relative simplicity of the surgical procedure, reliable retention and orientation, and low complication rates. Adhesive-retained prostheses provide a nonsurgical option with good esthetic results. Studies have found successful long-term stability and improvements in quality of life.
