Resumo To determine whether the lamina tragi, isthmus, and cavum conchae are a donor area for reconstruction of the alar cartilage with all its elements (medial crus, junction of the medial and lateral crura, and lateral crus),with the same dimension and en bloc, 40 alar cartilages and 40 lower parts of ear cartilages of 20 cadavers were dissected. Several measurements were taken in the alar cartilages, such as distance, thickness, and angle. Then they were compared with the measurements performed in the ear cartilages and segments removed from the lamina tragi, isthmus, and cavum conchae.This study, done with cadavers, shows that from the lamina tragi, isthmus, and cavum conchae, en bloc resection is possible with characteristics of form and dimension similar to those of the homolateral alar cartilage. the segment removed en bloc from the intermediate part of the lamina tragi, isthmus, and cavum conchae replaces, respectively, the medial crus, junction of the medial and lateral crura, and lateral crus.
