Abstract:Irregularity of the upper region of the helix can be prevented by performing scoring or abrasion of the upper part of the scapha. The prominence of the helix and width of the auricle are adjustable by varying the areas of the scapha receiving scoring or abrasion. These findings are useful in improving operative outcomes in the treatment of prominent ears.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
