The density of nerves was greater in skin covering the posteromedial (28,3 [+ or -] 4,9) than the anterolateral (10,2 [+ or -] 4,7) surfaces of the auricular cartilage and the percent of MBP+ nerves fibers as well (16,1 [+ or -] 8,5% versus 8,2 [+ or -] 3,6%) (Figures 6 and 7(a)).
In detail, in the lateral segment of MAEC inside the cartilage, the number of nerve profiles counted was 18,1 [+ or -] 6,7 (5,1 [+ or -] 2,4% MBP+) in the anterior-inferior segment, 24,3 [+ or -] 5,7 (21,4 [+ or -] 4,5% MBP+) in the superior segment, and 27,4 [+ or -] 6,2 (17,3 [+ or -] 5,1% BMP+) in the posterior-inferior segment; out of the cartilage, the density of nerves was 21,1 [+ or -] 8,3 (26,3 [+ or -] 5,4% MBP+) in the anterior-inferior segment, 28,6 [+ or -] 7,6 (24,3 [+ or -] 4,0% MBP+) in the superior segment, and 34,6 [+ or -] 8,1 (23,8 [+ or -] 6,0% MBP+) in the posterior-inferior segment (Figures 6 and 7(b)).
In our study, a variable percentage of MBP+ nerve fibers were observed in both the cavum conchae and MAEC, whose density paralleled that of the nerve profiles.
