Surgical procedures to correct malformations of the external auditory canal are associated with the risk of facial nerve injury. We operated on a 6-year-old boy with a stenotic external auditory canal using a Viewing Wand (ISG Technologies Inc., Mississauga, Ontario; Canada) for improved visualization. We present our experience using this imaging system for aural surgery.
