Conchal Crus Deformity Correction
The conchal crus is an abnormal extra fold of cartilage crossing through the middle of the concha of the ear. It is often difficult for parents to describe what it looks like, but many say that there is an extra fold of cartilage that looks like it divides the ear in half.

A conchal crus deformity can be corrected non-surgically with ear molding. The extra fold of cartilage can be quite thick and a fair amount of pressure needs to be applied to flatten it. For this reason, it is even more crucial to start ear molding on this deformity as early as possible after birth, when the cartilage is softest.
