'Drainage Auricular Hematoma' (40)


Dec
1969

Acute auricular hematoma can be caused by direct blunt trauma or other injury to the external ear. It is typically seen in those who practice full contact sports such as boxing, wrestling, and rugby. "Cauliflower ear" deformity, fibrocartilage formation during scarring, is a common complication of auricular hematomas.

Auricular haematoma.

Tidsskr Nor Laegeforen 2017 01 24;137(2):105-107. Epub 2017 Jan 24.
Christoffer Aam Ingvaldsen, Kim Alexander Tønseth
Auricular haematomas typically occur as a result of the auricle being pulled or subjected to blunt trauma in association with contact sports, accidents or violence. An auricular haematoma requires prompt surgical intervention to avoid cauliflower ear, also known as «wrestler’s ear». A cauliflower ear is a permanent deformity made up of connective tissue and cartilage.

Current Treatment Options for Auricular Hematomas.

Vet Clin North Am Small Anim Pract 2016 Jul 21;46(4):635-41. Epub 2016 Mar 21.
Catriona MacPhail
Ear disease, such as otitis externa, resulting in aggressive head shaking or ear scratching, is the most common cause of the development of aural hematomas in dogs and cats. An underlying immunologic cause has also been proposed to explain cartilage and blood vessel fragility. Numerous options exist for management of aural hematomas, from medical management alone with corticosteroids, to simple hematoma centesis, to surgical intervention.

Hematoma of the auricle which is a collection of blood beneath the perichondrial layer of the pinna usually poses a challenge to the otolaryngologist due to its high rate of recurrence after treatment and lack of appropriate material for use as stitch dressing especially, in the developing world. This is a Pilot study in which corrugated rubber drain was used as a stitch dressing after routine incision and drainage (I and D) in patients who presented with auricular hematoma.
To determine the effectiveness of corrugated rubber drain in the treatment of auricular hematoma.

Finesse in otoplasty in four steps.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2012 Aug 8;36(4):846-52. Epub 2012 Jun 8.
Júlio Antônio Stédile Ribeiro, Gisele Silva da Silva
This report describes the authors' personal experience with an otoplasty technique used to correct several deformities of the auricular cartilage in prominent ears using a single surgical procedure.
This technique allows for correction of all alterations in prominent ears by acting on four basic sites of the auricular cartilage using incisions, microincisions, and microresections that shape the curvature of the auricular cartilage. This, combined with elliptical resection of the retroauricular skin, provides prompt reshaping of the ear, conferring a natural appearance.

Evaluation of surgical treatment in mandibular condyle fractures.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2012 Dec 12;40(8):647-53. Epub 2011 Nov 12.
Aleš Vesnaver, Uroš Ahčan, Janez Rozman
In the past, fractures of the mandibular condylar process were, as a rule, treated conservatively. At the Department of Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery of the University Medical Centre Ljubljana, Slovenia, our doctrine was changed in 2002 on the basis of preliminary results and reports in the literature, and these fractures were started to be treated surgically by open reduction and internal fixation with miniplates and screws, which led to good results and a shorter rehabilitation period. The goal of this study was to determine the safety and efficiency of surgical treatment, as well as to compare long-term results of surgical and conservative treatment, as objectively as possible.

Acute auricular hematoma is common after blunt trauma to the side of the head. A network of vessels provides a rich blood supply to the ear, and the ear cartilage receives its nutrients from the overlying perichondrium. Prompt management of hematoma includes drainage and prevention of reaccumulation.

This study aimed to describe a "bolsterless" technique for managing auricular hematomas in professional fighters.
Eight auricular hematomas were drained under local anesthesia by incising along an anatomical auricular crease. After evacuation of the hematoma and copious irrigation, the resultant skin flap was replaced in anatomical position, and through-and-through absorbable mattress sutures were used to secure the flap in place.

Auricular hematoma and cauliflower deformation of the ear are unique in several respects. Knowledge about it began, in antiquity, through artists, particularly Greek and Roman, and then Japanese in the 18th century with their representation of cauliflower deformation of the ear on sculptures and paintings of pugilists and wrestlers. It is only in the 19th century that physicians began to make substantive progress in understanding this abnormality.

An unrecognized auricular hematoma can lead to a disfiguring deformity, the cauliflower ear, but it can be prevented with prompt and comprehensive management. Fine needle aspiration with pressure bandages remains the mainstay treatment but will occasionally fail. We review our experience with recurrent or recalcitrant auricular hematomas in terms of their pathophysiology and revision surgery.

Most of the previous treatment methods for auricular haematoma are inconvenient for both patients and doctors because they are time-consuming and complex and must be performed under sterile conditions. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a simple compressive method using a dental (silicone) impression material and comparing it with other methods for treatment of auricular haematomas. The authors aspirated a haematoma and then placed a mixed base and catalyst of silicone putty material on the anterior and posterior surfaces of the auricle in the shape of an inverted U for seven days.

Interventions for acute auricular haematoma.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2004 (2):CD004166
S E M Jones, S Mahendran
Acute haematoma of the pinna is a condition where a collection of blood forms beneath the perichondrial layer of the pinna. It is usually caused by blunt trauma, and if untreated will ultimately result in a deformity commonly known as 'cauliflower ear' or 'wrestler's ear'. Various treatments are employed to relieve the haematoma but no clear consensus exists on the best way to do so in order to produce the best cosmetic result with the least permanent deformity.

The auricular hematoma occurs secondary to trauma and can present a therapeutic dilemma for clinicians. Early intervention can be limited to simple incision and drainage. Delay in treatment may allow the growth of ectopic fibroneocartilage derived from the damaged perichondrium.

The auricle can be the site of a variety of cystic lesions, many of which involve either potential spaces between the auricular cartilage and the perichondrium or spaces within the skin and subcutaneous tissues. An auricular endochondral pseudocyst is a fluid collection located within the cartilaginous structure of the auricle. The auricular hematoma and the auricular pseudocyst may represent opposing ends of a continuum of damage and repair of traumatic insults.

Traumatic auricular hematoma: a case report.

J Craniomaxillofac Trauma 1997 ;3(1):32-5
E C Lee, A M Soliman, J Kim
Traumatic recurrent auricular hematoma can be a challenging medical problem, with complications resulting in cauliflower ear. Proper management often depends on an understanding of the pathophysiology and pathogenesis of fibroneocartilage--an abnormal fibrous cartilage formation in response to injury. Traditional treatment by incision and drainage, and compression dressing technique may be inadequate in the setting of recurrent or chronic hematoma.

Initial management of auricular trauma.

Am Fam Physician 1996 May;53(7):2339-44
D Lee, N Sperling
The exposed and unprotected position of the auricle makes it susceptible to injuries. Because many of these injuries are initially managed in a primary care setting, family physicians should have an understanding of the management of auricular hematomas, lacerations, abrasions and thermal injuries. Auricular hematoma requires prompt drainage and pressure applied to the site for several days.

The acute auricular haematoma following a blow to the external ear presents a number of treatment options. If a satisfactory final cosmetic result is to be obtained a minor surgical procedure of one sort or another must be performed to prevent a 'cauliflower ear'. Simple needle aspiration is often insufficient to prevent this complication.
