Abstract
In present study, a novel method of reconstruction and fabrication of a missing external ear is developed based on laser scanning technique and CAD/CAM technologies. Using the method, the prosthesis of an ear has been fabricated and applied in clinic successfully. The precision and efficiency of rehabilitation reconstruction is improved. The results suggest that the dimensions of the contralateral ear, its position and the shape of the deficient side of the face can be reliably measured on the patient and that laser scanning is useful technique for planning and monitoring facial reconstruction of the ear and other apparatus.
