Resection of the vertical ear canal for treatment of chronic otitis externa



Resection of the vertical ear canal for treatment of chronic otitis externa



Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association 16(5): 753-758

A surgical technique for ear canal drainage is described, where the vertical ear canal is removed leaving only the horizontal portion. Cases [75] are included.
