Kurozumi N, Ono S, Ishida H. Non-surgical correction of a congenital lop ear deformity by splinting with Reston foam. Br J Plast Surg. 1982;35(2):181-2.
A case is presented in which an unusual congenital lop ear deformity was treated successfully by splinting with Reston foam. The deformity has not recurred after an interval of 18 months. It is suggested that this method may be useful in the correction of similar deformities in very young infants in whom the ear cartilage is very soft.
