Modified Technique for Retaining Silicone Auricular Prosthesis: A Case Report


Abstract - Prosthetic rehabilitation of auricular defects can be a demanding procedure due to a broad variety of clinical presentations and a wide array of treatment options. The retention of auricular prostheses is a major factor influencing the successful outcome of rehabilitative treatment following cancer surgery or trauma. Auricular prostheses have been retained by methods including implants, adhesives and spectacle frames but the choice of repair ultimately depends on patient factors, amount of soft tissue loss, and location of the auricular defect. This article describes a newer technique of using resin template for silicone auricular prosthesis, for better retention and orientation. Moreover it is cost effective and aesthetically acceptable for patients who decline or need to postpone implant retained prosthesis reconstruction.

KEY WORDS: Auricular prosthesis, Resin template, Silicone
