The Conchal Crus Infant Ear Deformity
The conchal crus is an abnormal fold of cartilage crossing the mid portion of the concha symba essentlally dividing the ear in half. It sometimes extends all the way to the back wall of the ear essentially eliminating the conchal hollow and causing the ear to over-project. It is most often found in association with other deformities (see mixed). A key feature of the EarWell correction system is the conchal former which is uniquely designed to allow downward pressure to be applied to the conchal crus.
