Pressure therapy using custom-made pressure clips or splints is widely used for the treatment of ear keloid scars; however, it is often difficult to control the amount and direction of pressure applied. One of the most common complications of this therapy is ulceration due to excessive soft tissue pressure, resulting in delays and prolonged treatment time. This article presents a U-loop pressure clip of a novel design incorporating an adjustable U-loop component. This design allows for more control over the amount and direction of the pressure applied on the scar tissues.
