Intratympanic Stereoidal Injections for Facial Nerve Palsy

Bell's palsy is defined as a facial nerve palsy without any other known cause. The common practice for this disease consists of the use of oral steroids. Such treatment can cause harm to p...

Evaluation of Muscle Strength by Transcutaneous Electrical Stimulation

Intensive care unit acquired muscle weakness (ICUAW), a common disease characterized by damage to the peripheral nervous system and/or muscles, is a serious condition with significant morb...

Effects of Lumbar Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation on Exercise Performance in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Pulmonary rehabilitation effectively improves outcomes in patients with chronic respiratory ...

Intratympanic Steroid for Bell's Palsy

Facial nerve paralysis is due to inflammation around the facial nerve. Current treatment for facial nerve paralysis is a 10 day course of oral steroids (which will reduce the inflammation)...

Strength Training Using Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation For Children With Cerebral Palsy

The purpose of this study is to determine if using high-intensity, short-duration, intermittent neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is better than volitional exercise in increasing...

Facial nerve decompression.

Facial nerve paralysis is a debilitating condition. Bell's palsy and temporal bone trauma are common causes of acute facial palsy, with recurrent idiopathic paralysis and Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome...

Facial nerve palsy in children: A retrospective study of 124 cases.

To report the causes and clinical evaluation of children with facial nerve palsy (FNP) admitted to an affiliated university hospital during a 5-year period (2011-2015).

Preoperative Facial Nerve Mapping to Plan and Guide Pediatric Facial Vascular Anomaly Resection.

Facial vascular anomalies are surgical challenges due to their vascularity and facial nerve distortion. To assist facial vascular anomaly surgical treatment, presurgical percutaneous facial nerve stim...

Cross-Face Nerve Grafting versus Masseteric-to-Facial Nerve Transposition for Reanimation of Incomplete Facial Paralysis: A Comparative Study Using the FACIAL CLIMA Evaluating System.

Incomplete facial paralysis is still a challenge because we must restore what is missing without causing damage to what has recovered. The current literature is insufficient, with a small number of ca...

Electrical nerve stimulation modulates motor unit activity in contralateral biceps brachii during steady isometric contractions.

The purpose of our study was to compare the influence of five types of electrical nerve stimulation delivered through electrodes placed over the right biceps brachii on motor unit activity in the left...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A syndrome of congenital facial paralysis, frequently associated with abducens palsy and other congenital abnormalities including lingual palsy, clubfeet, brachial disorders, cognitive deficits, and pectoral muscle defects. Pathologic findings are variable and include brain stem nuclear aplasia, facial nerve aplasia, and facial muscle aplasia, consistent with a multifactorial etiology. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1020)

The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.

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.

Recurrent clonic contraction of facial muscles, restricted to one side. It may occur as a manifestation of compressive lesions involving the seventh cranial nerve (FACIAL NERVE DISEASES), during recovery from BELL PALSY, or in association with other disorders. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1378)

A syndrome characterized by the acute onset of unilateral FACIAL PARALYSIS which progresses over a 2-5 day period. Weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and resulting incomplete eye closure may be associated with corneal injury. Pain behind the ear often precedes the onset of paralysis. This condition may be associated with HERPESVIRUS 1, HUMAN infection of the facial nerve. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1376)
