Abstract

Alloplast microtia repair offers many advantages over autologous costal cartilage as a framework. Advantages include earlier reconstruction, fewer procedures, avoidance of donor site morbidity, shorter surgeon learning curve, and improved consistency in size and contour match. Though multiple implantable materials have been used in microtia reconstruction with variable success, preformed porous polyethylene frameworks combined with advances in soft tissue envelope techniques have significantly improved alloplast outcomes. The authors describe their technique in single-stage microtia reconstruction with the use of porous polyethylene as an alloplast framework.
