Abstract

The helical rim is often affected with cutaneous malignancies and requires special attention in the repair, owing to the complex cartilaginous contour, preservation of the aesthetic contour and restoration of its supportive function for eyeglasses and hearing aids. We review the surgical technique of chondrocutaneous advancement flap described by Antia and Buch as one of the most cosmetically appealing and versatile approaches for the repair of small defects of the ear helix.
