Abstract

About three percent of all skin cancers occur on the helix of the ear. Excision of the cancer results in a defect of the helical rim. Primary closure and wedge excision may produce cupping and helical notching deformities, except in small defects. In 1967, Antia and Buch described a chondrocutaneous advancement flap for marginal defects of the ear. This technique provides a reliable single-stage procedure an excellent cosmetic result. We report a case of squamous cell carcinoma on the helical rim, of which the surgical defect was repaired with a chondrocutaneous advancement flap.
