In the intratemporal portion, anterior displacement of the descending segment is the norm, making it most vulnerable while drilling the ear canal inferiorly. The extratemporal portion of the facial nerve is at risk of injury during meatoplasty, especially when the cartilaginous framework from the microtia repair lies anterior to the newly created ear canal, requiring mobilization for realignment. Other complications of atresiaplasty include persistent conductive hearing loss from ear canal stenosis, TM perforation or lateralization, and ossicular chain discontinuity or fixation.
