Abstract

Deformities of the external ear can affect psychosocial well-being and hearing. Current gold-standard reconstructive treatment is autologous costal cartilage grafting despite the vast morbidity profile. Tissue engineering using stem cells and 3D printing can create patient-specific reconstructed auricles with superior cosmetic outcomes and reduced morbidity. This review critically analyses recent and breakthrough research in the field of regenerative medicine for the pinna, considering gaps in current literature and suggesting further steps to identify whether this could be the new gold-standard.
