Orejas con pinnas mas altas que anchas y cubiertas por el pelaje, con el helix, antihelix
, antitrago y la fosa escafoidea poco desarrolladas.
Evaluation of Stahl's ear, third crus of antihelix
. Ann Plast Surg 1980;4(6):511-515.
As the long axis of the abnormal crus is often far from parallel to the normal long axis of the antihelix
, simple Mustarde suture methods may not be viable.
The skin and perichondrium of the upper and middle thirds of the antihelix
A 29-year-old woman presented to the plastic surgery clinic at the University of California-Irvine Medical Center with a chief complaint of a slowly growing lesion on the antihelix
of her right ear.
Tubercles 4 through 6 arise from the second branchial arch and form the (4) antihelix
, (5) antitragus, and (6) lobule.
This usually starts along the helix or antihelix
and gradually involves entire ear and may eventually form an abscess.
Physical examination showed clubfoot, low-set ears with dysplastic lobes and dysmorphic antihelix
, anteverted nostrils, arachnodactyly, low-set thumbs, bilateral clinodactyly of 5th finger of the hands, and varus foot.
The presence of protruding ears was defined based on the examiner's observation, as an angle greater than 30[degrees] between the auricular pavilion and the skull, occurring due to concha increase or lateralization, and/or a lack of adequate folding of the antihelix
For correction of the antihelix
, a methylene blue-stained 30-gauge needle was inserted anteriorly on each side of the proposed antihelix
in order to stain the margins for suture folding posteriorly.
the shen men located on the triangular fossa, superior to the origin of the superior and inferior crus of the antihelix
