Abstract

1. What forms of nonsurgical therapy (physical therapy, electrical stimulation, and so forth) do you recommend to improve the outcome of facial paralysis and why? 2. Explain your preoperative assessment tool for deciding what to do (Eye reanimation? Who needs a medial canthoplasty? and so forth). 3. How do you assess the results of management of facial paralysis? 4. Discuss the use of end-to-side anastomosis (Viterbo concept of something for nothing). Should it be used; why or why not? 5. What is your preferred method for temporalis muscle transposition and why? Are there any tricks to improving the results? 6. Do you use cross-facial nerve jump grafts and use them for free muscle innervation? If so, what are the pearls you have learned from this technique and when do you use it? 7. Analysis: Over the past 5 years, how has your approach evolved or what have you learned/observed in working with reanimation?
