PMID: 7672847

A prospective study of 20 patients receiving rehabilitation for a missing external ear revealed the failure of three flanged implants in a total of 60 placed for the support of a prosthesis and 10 for retention of a bone-anchored hearing aid. Factors limiting an optimal outcome were health of the cutaneous cuff around the abutments, bonding of the silicone ear to the acrylic-resin substructure, and the ability to minimize disfigurement of a congenitally deformed face.
