ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE To investigation the efficacy of ear molding in the treatment of congenital auricular deformation. METHODS 30 in fants(40 ears)who from the head and neck surgery of  October 2020 to June 2021, the head and neck surgery of children's hospital in kunming city was treated was treated were treated with ear molding devices(EarWell Infant Ear Correction System). Doctors and parents were surveyed 1 months after treatment. RESULTS All cases were treated successfully without severe complications. 36 ears(90%) were rated as very satisfied or satisfied by doctors and parents. CONCLUSION Ear molding is a noninvasive treatment, and effectively corrects congenital auricular deformation.
