Introduction: Ear deformities are a major problem in aesthetic and social terms for affected patients. Its reconstruction can be basically by autologous grafts or osseointegrated implants, depending on the experience of the surgeon and specific patient’s peculiarities. The standard treatment is the autogenous tissue reconstruction, but prosthetic osseointegrating operation may have great results in selected cases. Objectives: Review the outcomes of osseointegrated implants for ear rehabilitation and discuss the main indications and complications of this technique. Methods: Systematic review of the literature about complications and patients outcomes after osseointegrated implant for ear rehabilitation from year 2000 to 2015. Results: 18 articles were selected, a total of 844 ears implanted. Conclusion: Osseointegrated implants are a good option in selected cases, and with the development of new materials and techniques they may have broader indication and lower rate of unfavorable outcomes.
