Abstract:   (1604 Views)

Traumatic injuries of ear range from simple lacerations to complex avulsions and crush injuries. The complicating factors involved are cartilage involvement, poor vascularity of the region and need for high cosmetic satisfaction. Various techniques have been described for reconstruction of earlobe after traumatic injuries. Here, we describe the reconstruction of a partially avulsed pinna using the versatile Limberg flap with superior cosmetic outcomes. This is probably the first case to be described in literature to utilizing the Limberg flap for reconstruction of a traumatic avulsion of pinna.
