Abstract

We describe a new technique for the treatment of cryptotia by which stitches for bolster fixation are inserted parallel to the auriculartemporal sulcus and temporarily left untied. After the bolster has been inserted into the temporal sulcus, the corresponding ends of the threads are tied to each other. Our technique is easy to use and secures a firm bolster fixation, and we recommend it for the treatment of cryptotia.
