Objective: To analyze the nonsurgical treatment effect of ear moding device on congenital auricle deformities in infant, and to provide guidance for improvment. Methods: A total of 65 infant (95 ears) with congenital auricle malformation admitted from January 2021 to June 2021 were selected as the research subjects. They were divided into 3 groups according to the initial age of correction: group A (≤7 days) (n=31), group B (8-42 days) (n=50), and group (C >42 days) (n=14). The correction time, correction effect and complications of 3 groups were recorded. Results: The correction time of group A was lower than that of group B, and group B was lower than that of group C, and the difference was statistically significant. The cure rate of group A was better than group B, and group B was better than group C, the difference was statistically significant. There was no statistical significance in the incidence of complications among the groups, and the main complication was eczema. Conclusion:The nonsurgical treatment by ear moding device is effective on congenital auricular deformation, and the earlier the child receives the treatment, the better the effect, the shorter the correction time.
