Abstract

Skin and cartilage defects from the conchal cavity to the external auditory canal were reconstructed with the use of a chondrocutaneous postauricular island flap. Although based on the experience of only one case, the authors believe that this island flap is extremely useful in the repair of skin and cartilage defects of the conchal cavity and the external auditory canal.
