Ear Splinting

Patient 1

Newborn with Stahl’s ear deformity.  Underwent 4 weeks of static splinting of left ear.  Shown pre-splinting protocol and 3 weeks after splint was removed.

Ear splinting is a process that involves moulding the ear cartilage to make a more normal shape.  It is best to start at 2-3 weeks old because the ear cartilage is very soft and malleable during this time.  Splints are made for the ear and taped into place.  The first visit allows the surgeon to create the splints and place them into the ears.  The splints need to be worn at all times and can be reinforced by parents at home.  The patient should come for follow up visits every week and sometimes more often to ensure the splinting is working or make adjustments to the splints.  Most splinting takes 4 to 6 weeks for fully correct the ear shape.
