Abstract

EURIDES, Duvaldo. Autologus costicartilage graft to repair external ear deviation of dogs: an experimental study. Cienc. Rural [online]. 1996, vol.26, n.1, pp. 103-107. ISSN 0103-8478.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84781996000100019.

To perform the research twelve dogs between 7 and 12 months old were submitted to a surgical technique in order to test new method to repair lateral external ear deviation with an autologus costicartilage implant. The ears presented erect posture, normal appearance, movement and no deviations. Macroscopic examination showed that the implant was firmly attached to the auricular cartilage and skin. Around the costicartilage fibrous connective tissue was observed by optical microscopy. This surgical technique can be used to correct lateral deviations of dogs ears.
