Figure 2: The second step of framework training using a plastic eraser. The base frame and antihelix were outlined on the sixth and seventh conjoint cartilage model by reference to a template obtained from a child's normal ear (a). The base frame and antihelix were carved out using a no. 15 scalpel, and the helical rim was created by longitudinally splitting the eighth rib model (b). All parts are affixed to the base block using 5-0 nylon sutures (c)
