The facial profile is an essential part of facial analysis and significantly impacts surgical decision making. Knowledge of the underlying anatomy, which creates the facial profile, and the anatomic s...
Iatrogenic facial nerve injury is a common cause of long-standing facial palsy. This study aimed to assess functional results after facial reanimation in iatrogenic facial palsy and to determine corre...
Facial skeletal changes that occur with aging have critical importance to the aesthetics of the aging face and the field of facial rejuvenation. Patterns of bony change may differ based on race, but e...
Improved means of positive diagnosis of facial neuritis, the leading cause of peripheral facial palsy
The primary objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of a facial yoga exercise program on appearance and to measure patient satisfaction with facial yoga practice.
This is a protocol to govern the prospective trial of facial nerve monitoring in patients undergoing parotidectomy with an eye towards interpreting if the facial nerve monitor provides use...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether facial exercises in conjunction with opening exercises routinely provided after facial surgery to correct a facial skeletal disharmony wil...
This study will be unique for the rehabilitation of patients with facial paralysis in that the focus is to generate novel 3D facial soft tissue measures to characterize the condition and t...
Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.
Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.
The 7th cranial nerve. The facial nerve has two parts, the larger motor root which may be called the facial nerve proper, and the smaller intermediate or sensory root. Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and salivary glands, and convey afferent information for taste from the anterior two-thirds of the tongue and for touch from the external ear.
Neuralgic syndromes and other conditions which feature chronic or recurrent FACIAL PAIN as the primary manifestation of disease. Disorders of the trigeminal and facial nerves are frequently associated with these conditions.
Diseases of the facial nerve or nuclei. Pontine disorders may affect the facial nuclei or nerve fascicle. The nerve may be involved intracranially, along its course through the petrous portion of the temporal bone, or along its extracranial course. Clinical manifestations include facial muscle weakness, loss of taste from the anterior tongue, hyperacusis, and decreased lacrimation.
