Five Years in Development

Revolutionary Implant Restores Canines Ears

KANSAS CITY. Mo (Oct. 25) - It may be a Doberman Pincher, Boxer, Great Dane or German Shepherd. Or, it can include any canine whose ear or ears should stand up straight but doesn't for one reason or another.

Enter Gregg Miller, president of CTI Corporation -creator of Neuticles for Pets-and 2005 IG Nobel Peace Prize winner for Medicine.

Miller announced today the release of PermaStay Ear Implants for canines with broken ears. Considered revolutionary by the pet industry, the space age implant- five years in development- is now available Worldwide.

“For decades attempts have been made by many to successfully create a product that restores a dog’s ear but have failed and have failed miserably”, said Miller. “These products have included wires, rods and sticks which not only rejected once implanted but was inhumane to the pet, visibly detectable and for short term use.”

Miller said PermsStay is not only humane to the pet but is virtually undetectable once placed and will last for the life of the pet.

Crafted with FDA medically approved surgical mesh, the implant consists of a 3” x 4” foundation. The mesh was specially created to be compatible with the sensitive tissue within the pets ear and to eliminate risk of migration of the implant within the ear once placed.

In the center of the mesh foundation is a specially designed “spine” which is made of FDA medically approved fluroplastic. The spine, which measures nearly four inches in length and is ¾” wide, was painstakingly developed to not create trauma inside the ear once placed. It features polished rounded edges and sides with 19 micro holes strategically placed throughout the spine.

A second layer of a softer surgical mesh is then sonic welded atop the spine which not only eliminates risk of inner ear trauma but allows for tissue growth which adds even greater ear support over a short period of time.

A Worldwide referral database is now being established by Miller’s 15 year old company. Distribution of PermaStay is limited to veterinarians with an expertise with ear cropping's to assure procedural success. Miller said there are currently 54 participating facilities in the US and around the World.

Miller projects 1000 participating veterinary clinics and hospitals Worldwide for the procedure within two years.

While the manufacturing process of patent pending PermaStay is complex, Miller said it is well worth the effort as clinical testing and commercially implanted pets have been restored perfectly with no complications or side effects .

“It’s absolutely amazing,” Miller said. “Once the ear is fully healed you can bend the ear and it snaps right back into place naturally. Its truly remarkable and the best part is the canine doesn't even know it’s there”.

The indications for implanting PermaStay prosthetic implants are quite varied. As a general statement, incorrect ear posture of the erect eared breeds of dogs, is the most routine reason for its use. The most routine indication is to correct cartilage breaks or folds in post surgical ear trim situations. This occurs most commonly in Doberman Pinchers, but also in Great Danes and Boxers. It can occur in any breed of dog for many different reasons. To list a few: overall health of the dog, nutrition, genetic predisposition, weak cartilage, muscle/nerve control, trauma, and improper surgical procedure and/or aftercare. The results judged very pleasing by one owner or veterinarian may be judged very poor by another. Be aware that in severe trauma cases, inadequate blood supply may be a very important factor on the success of this implant surgery.

PermaStay is provided sterile by the manufacturer. Sterile technique is absolutely essential.

PermaStay is crafted from three parts:
    A) Surgical Mesh Foundation

    The surgical mesh foundation is designed to provide support for the spine once implanted as the FDA medically approved material will allow tissue growth through the mesh.

    B) Fluroplastic Spine

    The Fluroplastic spine is crafted to provide optimum support and tissue growth. The spine is carefully made with rounded edges and corners as to not create inner ear trauma once implanted. Multiple holes are strategically placed to allow tissue growth which will aid in ear support.

    C) Surgical Mesh Overlay

    The Surgical Mesh Overlay is sonic welded atop the Fluroplastic spine to provide support, eliminate risk of potential trauma from the spine and to allow tissue growth which will provide added support.


The prognosis for good results improves with experience in ear trimming and aftercare, and of course; experience in installing PermaStay. This procedure should only be performed by a licensed veterinarian. A clear working knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the canine ear is essentail. Utmost care in surgical principles and aseptic technique is required. Infection and complication risks are much higher when installing a prosthetic material than when doing a routine ear trim. The prognosis of success exceeds 95% when you carefully follow these principles and when the break or fold is located in the middle 50% of the ear concha.


Procedures for correcting improper carriage or break in the mid 50% of the affected ear concha.
    1. Clip hair and prepare the surgical area; extending the prepped area 4 to 5 cm onto the skin around the base of the ear.

    2. Place one or two sterile cotton balls into the ear canal.

    3. Make incision through skin and cartilage on the concave surface of the concha. Incision usually is parallel with the long axis of the ear. The incision should extend 2 to 3 cm both distal and proximal to the break in the cartilage. Blunt dissection of the subcutaneous fascial tissue connection between cartilage and skin (on the convex surface) should extend 1 to 3 cm around the entire incision peripherally. Note: Very little hemorrhage is expected; however, a clotting time should always be checked. Also withhold any aspirin 3 days before and after surgery. To avoid slight risk of mesh migration, suture corners of mesh with disolvable material.

    4. Close incision with simple horizontal mattress sutures- Vicryl-0 material.

    5. While each ear varies it is the option of the surgeon to TempoStay or bandage the ear following the procedure. It is generally recommended that the ear be supported with either the TempoStay or bandaging after placement of PermaStay for 10 to 14 days.


As with routine ear trim surgery, proper aftercare is a very important part of improving the probability of good results. Edema, seroma, hematoma resulting in post operative swelling are more likely than with routine ear crop surgery. Broad spectrum antibiotics for 10 days and effective anti inflammatory medication is recommended. External application of additional apparatus for post op ear support is at the option of the surgeon.

Pain medication and or tranquilizers should be prescribed as needed. Evaluate the surgery on day two or three and again at ten days. At this time, remove the sutures and determine if other aftercare or ear training apparatus is indicated.


With proper overall evaluation of the animal’s health, good surgical skill and thorough post operative care, a very high percentile of these broken ears will stand very well, probability is 95%. This prognosis is with breaks in the middle 50% of the ear.


PermaStay has proven to be over 99% non reactive to canine tissue in all previous tests and clinical uses. Successful installation should last the life of the canine without complications. Unsightly appearance of the prosthesis material is non-existent in most cases. Pet should be healthy prior to placement without any known allergies or low immunity.


554 canines have been implanted with PermaStay.

1) Three canines have experienced a mesh migration. It is now advised that corners of the surgical mesh foundation and center of the implant be anchored with dissolvable sutures.

2) 87 canines have experienced mild to severe post operative fluid buildup in the ear due to placement trauma. 33 of the 87 canines required drainage of the ear while the remainder absorbed back into the body without drainage. Surgeons using laser technology have experienced no post operative swelling.

3) Three canines to date have experienced what appeared to be a post operative allergic reaction. Pets, prior to placement of PermaStay, should be of excellent health including immune system and not have any known allergies for one year prior to placement.

4) Four canine ears- where the break of fold was midway - were corrected with PermaStay but the fold reoccured below the implanted area.

5) While it is at the option of the surgeon, it is advised that post operative TempoStay Ear Supports or the ear be bandaged in an upright position to allow tissue growth into the surgical mesh foundation which - in 10 to 14 days or longer - adds additional ear support.

6) It is essential that surgeons implanting PermaStay have a proven success rate in ear cropping and ear restoration before attempting the implantation of PermaStay.
