Facial nerve palsy classification

Surface EMG biofeedback was used initially to measure muscle activity associated with voluntary facial movements. The physical therapy evaluation consisted of grading resting posture, voluntary movement, and the presence of synkinesis or abnormal movement, using the Facial Grading System FGS developed by Ross and colleagues. Pronounced asymmetry of facial muscles on MR images is predictive of poor facial function after grafting. Voluntary movement had increased to minimal to moderate movement. It is possible that the condition of the facial muscles seen on later follow-up images is reflective of ultimate function. Three different types of grafts were used: She was still unable to resume swimming because she could not adequately protect her cornea.

House–Brackmann score

The overall prevalence of facial nerve palsy has been estimated at cases per 10 people in the general population. Instructing the patient in a maintenance program at the last physical therapy session may help to prevent an increase in facial muscle tightness and synkinesis over time. Facial muscle asymmetry on preoperative images seems to be a sensitive predictor of perineural invasion, and these MR imaging changes may precede clinical facial palsy. Eight had malignant parotid tumors, and four had benign skull base or parotid tumors. Based on the initial signs and symptoms severe resting asymmetry, minimal voluntary movement, absent synkinesis, and impaired function , MC was considered to be in an initiation treatment category Tab.

Scores were compared and the Spearman rank correlation coefficient was calculated between the total scores and each of the 3 subscores, including static, dynamic, and synkinesis scores. The scale is used to determine the severity of facial nerve dysfunction in people with facial palsy. Table of Contents Index by author. Related Articles No related articles found.

Could barely make it through the video because of the high pitch feedback, but I love how he pushes her down and to the side at 3:30 - mmm take it :)
