Anotia / Microtia
-Microtia is a condition in which the outer, visible part of the ear, is underdeveloped or malformed. Appearance can be from undersized, but otherwise normal ear, to an ear with severe structural abnormalities.
- Babies can be missing the whole inner ear canal entirely
-Parents who wish to avoid having surgery preformed on their children may go for use of prosthetic ears, attached to the patient’s head by either glue or titanium pins. Prosthetic ears may also be surgically attached to the head.
