malformations of the ear

Ear malformations can be corrected by surgical intervention but in cases where there is a need to reconstruct an external auditory duct, the hearing can not be restored; this is because the development of the tympanic membrane and the middle ear is still insufficient.

As for the reconstruction of a new auricle, it can be done with extensive plastic surgery: operations that may be useful from a psychological point of view, even if aesthetic aspects may not be entirely fixed.

Recovery of hearing capacity is possible thanks to timpanoplasty.
