HEAR MAPS Paper (PDF)
Roberson JB et al. – Describe anatomical and radiological findings in 742 patients evaluated for congenital aural atresia and microtia by a multidisciplinary team. Develop a new classification method to enhance multidisciplinary communication regarding patients with congenital aural atresia and microtia. Patients with congenital aural atresia and microtia often require the intervention of audiology, otology, plastic surgery, craniofacial surgery and speech and language professionals to achieve optimal functional and esthetic reconstruction. Good communication between these disciplines is essential for coordination of care. The authors describe the use of a new classification method that efficiently describes the physical and radiologic findings in microtia/atresia patients to improve communication amongst care providers.
