Ear Deformity
  • External ear deformities are addressed between 5 to 7 years of age, although hearing aids, as mentioned above, must be placed within the first year if needed. Additional procedures may be necessary as the child grows and reaches adolescence.[kidsplastsurg.com]

  • There is no current method for preventing new mutations.[clinicaladvisor.com]
  • There is no therapy, or preventive measures against TCS, and affected individuals typically undergo reconstructive surgeries, over several years, that can hardly be fully corrective. Thus, prevention is the best hope for individuals at risk. Dr.[checkorphan.org]
