Abstract
Objective: To determine the effect of metal splints on ear lobe keloid recurrence after
surgical excision.
Methods: The study was conducted in Holy Family Hospital, Rawalpindi and POF
Hospital, Wah Medical College (WMC), Wah between July 2004 and April 2007. Ten
untreated female patients of ear lobe keloid secondary to ear lobe piercing had surgical
excision followed by wearing metal splint for 6 months. All patients were followed for
one year for recurrence.
Results and conclusion: Not a single patient had recurrence. We strongly recommend
surgical excision followed by metal splints wearing for 6 months. They are comfortable
and have excellent compliance. (Rawal Med J 2007;32:197-198).

Key words: Metal splints, pressure splints, ear keloid
