This course has established itself to be one of the most important forums in the teaching and exchanging of ideas regarding facial paralysis. During two and a half days, topics about facial paralysis will be covered , from the basics to the advanced didactic lectures, expert panels, surgical and non-surgical workshops, and discussions of clinical cases. Renowned experts from around the world will meet in the course to discuss the progress made in the treatment of facial paralysis. While surgeons will benefit from a didactic selection of surgical techniques for facial reanimation, which will be shown in a step-by-step manner, emphasizing pits and pitfalls, physicians will benefit from a Botulinum Toxin Workshop with real patients.

Skip to main content. It is important to note that while the facial nerve branches within the parotid gland, it does not provide autonomic innervation to the gland This is supplied by the auriculotemporal division of V3. CN VII is often tested during physical examination and its function can be reported using the House-Brackmann Scale Hint: 1 is normal, 6 is completely non-functional. Parasympathetic Innervation: CN VII provides pre ganglionic parasympathetic innervation to: Submandibular glands Sublingual glands Lacrimal glands Mucous membranes of the nose, palate, and pharynx It is important to note that all of the post ganglionic parasympathetic nerve fibers from CN VII are actually carried to their ultimate targets via divisions of CN V.
Endoscopic Facial Nerve Regeneration Surgery for Bell’s Palsy
In the clinical phase of this work, we have tested 8 normal subjects and 5 patients with unilateral peripheral facial palsy by the SEP method. Significant and reproducible responses were obtained in the normal nerves; general wave-form and different parameters are described: latency of different activities, differences inter and intra-subjects. In one case, we performed a brain mapping by stimulation of the Ramsay-Hunt zone to improve the localization of the different activities and to differentiate them from a possible auditory response to the electrical stimulation. In the pathological nerves, we observed significant changes in the morphology of the cortical waves with regards to the healthy nerves. Detailed results are presented in two cases with a long-term follow-up.
Question 1: Does intraoperative facial nerve monitoring during vestibular schwannoma surgery lead to better long-term facial nerve function? Target Population: This recommendation applies to adult patients undergoing vestibular schwannoma surgery regardless of tumor characteristics. Recommendation: Level 3: It is recommended that intraoperative facial nerve monitoring be routinely utilized during vestibular schwannoma surgery to improve long-term facial nerve function.
