US Develops Prosthetic Ear

Good news for people born with under-developed outer ears: Prof Laurence Bosner of Cornell University, NY has invented a prosthetic gel-filled ear transplant that will graft to the patient’s flesh and hopefully, become incorporated to match his cellular DNA. The ear is literally ‘grown’ on a cellular platform for full subject compatibility. The first implants will be possible in three years.
