Authors(4) :-Salah M., Alziady G. M., Abdel Azeem Kh, Sakr W.

Since the aim of the plastic surgeons is to improve both the patient quality of life and the psychiatric status, they always search about the best technique for each case. This study evaluates the aesthetic outcome and patient satisfaction after auricular reconstruction using Medpor enveloped in a temporoparietal facial flap with full-thickness skin graft. The aesthetic results were assessed by taking the experts score from 1(failure) to 5 (very good). The results of reconstructions were accepted as an aesthetically pleasing with high degree of patient's satisfaction. There were two complicated cases, one exposure which were managed without implant removal and one infected implant was salvaged by irrigation with antibiotics.
