Abstract

Various materials have been used to repair orbital defects. This article advocates the use of autogenous conchal cartilage, especially in the repair of large posttraumatic defects, where contour, biocompatibility, and strength are most important. The technique for harvesting the cartilage is reviewed, and a case demonstrating its successful use is reported.
