One study did find a negative side effect to use of tragal cartilage removal. Pothier D.D & Charaklias N. in 2006 study showed ten of the 12 patients in the tragal harvesting group who had used " in the ear"earphones pre- and post-operatively had had problems with earphones post-operatively, which in eight cases were due to pain or the devices falling out. Of the 12 respondents in the non-tragus group, only one had similar problems (p<0.05).
