The Modified Converse Technique in Combination with Cavum Rotation
18 March 2005 (online)
We report our experiences in 210 patients with protruding ears who underwent a surgical correction of their deformity using a modified “Converse technique.” The technique combines a posterior incomplete cartilage incision with permanent cartilage sutures and a cavum rotation if necessary. The described technique provides a good anterior width and normal relief, with shaped anthelix and crus superior, can be achieved.
