Answer

Answer

See the list below:

  • Tender anterior auricular swelling after trauma, which deforms the normal anatomy of the pinna

  • Presentation within 7 days after trauma (After 7 days, the formation of granulation tissue may complicate the procedure. At that point, patients should be referred to a specialist.)
