Results of Treatment of 20 Patients With Implant-Retained Auricular Prostheses
Watson, Roger M. / Coward, Trevor J. / Forman, Geoffrey H.
A prospective study of 20 patients receiving rehabilitation for a missing external ear revealed the failure of three flanged implants in a total of 60 placed for the support of a prosthesis and 10 for retention of a bone-anchored hearing aid. Factors limiting an optimal outcome were health of the cutaneous cuff around the abutments, bonding of the silicone ear to the acrylic-resin substructure, and the ability to minimize disfigurement of a congenitally deformed face.
