Les épithèses de pavillon auriculaire implanto-portées : à propos d'un cas clinique

Abstract : Disfigured person has a different perception of herself, she sees herself as "not human." The epithesis gives back a face to the people who has lost it, an identity, a social interface with the outside world. Prosthesis Maxillofacial can be defined as the art and science of the artificial reconstruction of the facial. In the first part, a bio-psycho-social approach of disfigured patient is presented in the context of a comprehensive care. Reminders of losses of substances and types of epithesis are also developed. In the second part, the course of care for a patient who ablation of the right ear is explained through a clinical case. The making of a silicone epithesis and two imprint techniques are detailed and compared in this work. The conventional technique called "pick up" and a new technique called "surface scan" based on the design and computer aided manufacturing, or CAM. We have demonstrated that the conventional method ha! s better results than digital technology for this clinical case. In fact it is less expensive and is described in the literature as the most reliable in dental implantology. Our study demonstrates the feasibility and value of the "pick-up" technique in a ear epithesis design.
