Non-surgical management: Taping of the Lop Ear

Lop ear is a type of congenital external ear deformation with folding over of the upper third of the ear. Children are often bullied for these noticeable anomalies. Successful management depends on early initiation and parental persistence. We present a nonsurgical, easily replicable and cost-effective method using a dental wax splint secured with steri-strips. This video can be used as an adjunct for telehealth appointments in parent education to reduce delay in treatment and to promote therapy maintenance.
