OBJECTIVES Due to their embryological development, auricular atresia and severe microtia are, in most cases, combined malformations. The aims of this study were firstly to develop a surgical technique for combined esthetic and functional reconstruction with a minimum of operations and secondly to evaluate its results. STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical evaluation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty-two patients with third-degree microtia and congenital aural atresia with a sound-conducting block of…

Reconstruction of Congenital Microtia and Anotia: Analysis of Practitioner Epidemiology and Postoperative Outcomes
Reconstruction of the external ear for patients with microtia/anotia is a safe procedure, with low rates of postoperative complications, readmissions, and reoperations, and simultaneous atresiaplasty/middle ear repair does not increase the risk of complications.

A new partially implantable Bone Conduction Hearing Device without a percutaneous abutment that only needs one operation, has a very low risk for complication, and a hearing gain similar to other bone conducting hearing aids is evaluated.
Microtia and Sensory Defects in Growth
It was reported that “The better developed the auricle in patients with microtia, the better developed middle ear structures”, however, patients with severe developed auricle were not always having severe hearing loss.

Clinical and physiological evaluations
The reconstructed ear had a changed thermosensitivity, but there did not seem to be any clinical disadvantages, and thermal sensitivity was tested quantitatively using a SENSELab MSA Thermotest.
Vollimplantierbares Hörsystem bei Atresia auris congenita
The aim of this project was to modify the only fully implantable hearing device with an implantable microphone for application in congenital auricular atresia, Carina™, and to introduce the modified device into the clinic.
Rehabilitation and Prognosis of Disorders of Hearing Development
The prognosis of childhood hearing impairment depends upon the type of hearing disorder diagnosed, its severity and time of onset, the time points at which the hearing impairment was detected and
Diagnosis and Differential Diagnosis of Disorders of Hearing Development
Specific history-taking, drawing a family tree and thorough clinical examination are explained in detail. Standards and calibration in audiometry are presented. Pure-tone audiometry (PTA) and
Teilimplantierbare transkutane Knochenleitungshörgeräte
This work develops a semi-implantable, magnetically anchored transcutaneous bone conduction device, introduces it into clinical application and follow-up the results with the new “upside down technique”.
