Bottom Line: Malformations of the head and neck show a huge variety of clinical symptoms with functional and esthetic consequences.These must consider eating, speech, mimic expression, hearing and "esthetics" or at least "normality".A survey of the most common head and neck malformations and their treatment options are presented here.

ABSTRACT
Malformations of the head and neck show a huge variety of clinical symptoms with functional and esthetic consequences. Often times its rehabilitation requires multi-staged and multi-disciplinary procedures and concepts. These must consider eating, speech, mimic expression, hearing and "esthetics" or at least "normality". A survey of the most common head and neck malformations and their treatment options are presented here.

Figure 6: Protruding earsa–c: Pre, d–f: post ostoplasty

Mentions: For thicker cartilage, we use the Converse technique [8], [6] (Figure 6 (Fig. 6)). Access, preparation of the cartilaginous auricular surface and markings are equivalent to the above outlined technique of Mustarde. The posterior surface of the ear cartilage is then incised where the markings were made, but under strict preservation of ventral perichondrium. The incisions are at the base of the newly defined anthelix respectively. Shaping a harmonious running antihelix is again with several mattress sutures. In addition, if necessary, a conchal setback and lobule plasty might be performed (see below).
