Abstract

Tissue defects in the antihelix and the concha due to oncological resection and trauma can be successfully repaired with a subcutaneously based postauricular island flap. Alternative methods of regional reconstruction usually need two stages or may require grafts in some patients. We present the one-stage technique, as described by Masson, without grafts, to provide adequate reconstruction and aesthetic restoration of the area, illustrated by 62 patients. In all patients there has been a follow-up period of 12 months. This report provides evidence for the aesthetic superiority of this method. An excellent aesthetic outcome was achieved in 46 patients, an adequate outcome in 15 patients, and a poor result in only 1 patient. No flap necrosis was observed. The method has considerable advantages for the repair of anterior conchal and antihelical defects.
