Abstract

This case report illustrates the use of a Radovan tissue expander in a patient undergoing reconstruction of the upper two-thirds of the external ear. The expansion facilitated draping of the superior retro-auricular skin over the autogenous costal cartilage framework that was used for the skeletal reconstruction of the ear.
