CERCI, Felipe Bochnia. Staged retroauricular flap for helical reconstruction after Mohs micrographic surgery. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.5, suppl.1, pp.144-147. ISSN 0365-0596.

Staged retroauricular flap is a great option for full-thickness defects along the helical rim and antihelix. Donor site consists of the posterior ear, postauricular sulcus and mastoid area. The advantages of this flap include hidden donor scar, donor tissue similarity and rich vascularity. We present a case of collision tumor on the left helix treated with Mohs micrographic surgery and the resulting full-thickness defect repaired with a staged retroauricular flap. This flap is an effective technique for full-thickness helical defect repair with relatively little operative morbidity. High esthetic and functional results may be obtained restoring the ear size and shape.
