• Surgery
  • However, there are really only two main distinctions to be made in parotidectomies: The specific nerve(s) to be dissected or not dissected The amount of gland excised It is important to note that the specific surgery chosen is based on preservation of the facial nerve in order to avoid significant morbidities (diseases). (wikipedia.org)
  • Facial nerve decompression is a type of nerve decompression surgery where abnormal compression on the facial nerve is relieved. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Australasian Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery (AAFPS) was founded in 1990 and is sometimes referred to as the Australian Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Academy is a founding member of the International Federation of Facial Plastic Surgery Societies (IFFPSS), which encourages the education of facial plastic surgery worldwide. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • However, tension-free reconnection is needed, otherwise scar formation can occur and axons will regenerate outside the facial nerve. (wikipedia.org)
  • procedure
  • Eight years later, Terzis introduced the "babysitter" procedure, which consists of a combination of CFNGs and a simultaneous partial hypoglossal to facial nerve transfer. (wikipedia.org)
  • During a cross facial nerve graft procedure one or more branches of the non-paralysed facial nerve are divided and connected to one or more sural nerve grafts which are tunnelled to the affected side of the face. (wikipedia.org)
  • canal
  • Reactivation of latent virus within the dorsal root ganglion of the facial nerve is associated with vesicles affecting the ear canal, and termed Ramsay Hunt syndrome type II. (wikipedia.org)
  • Otitis media is an infection in the middle ear, which can spread to the facial nerve and inflame it, causing compression of the nerve in its canal. (wikipedia.org)
  • diseases
  • The Oculofacial Fellowship Program of the Krieger Eye Institute and Sinai Hospital provides post-graduate medical education in a unique ophthalmic subspecialty that includes the in-depth study, diagnosis and treatment of a full spectrum of oculoplastic and facial diseases.

  • partial
  • partial superficial parotidectomy - superficial parotidectomy where the surgeon excises only the portion of the gland surrounding the neoplasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • Indications include: In the evaluation of the functional integrity of the salivary glands In case of obstructions To evaluate the ductal pattern In case of facial swellings, to rule out salivary gland pathology In case of intra-glandular neoplasms. (wikipedia.org)
  • patient
  • The patient also had extensive hearing loss, little to no body hair, distorted facial features, and joint contractures. (wikipedia.org)
  • The patient was a mentally retarded 43-year-old woman who had hearing impairment, distorted facial features, muscle atrophy, cataracts, and ossification of cartilage. (wikipedia.org)
  • complex
  • The term "adenoma sebaceum" is a misnomer for facial angiofibromas associated with tuberous sclerosis complex. (wikipedia.org)
  • seen
  • In this test increasing electric stimulation to nerve is given until the facial twitch is seen then it is repeated to affected side. (wikipedia.org)
  • cases
  • Primrose syndrome is a rare, slowly progressive genetic disorder that can vary symptomatically between individual cases, but is generally characterised by ossification of the external ears, learning difficulties, and facial abnormalities. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • Soft-shell clams, Mya arenaria, have been found to be vulnerable to a transmissible neoplasm of the hemolymphatic system - effectively, leukemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • side
  • Below indicates the various and main techniques typically associated with a parotidectomy: superficial (near surface) or lateral (side) parotidectomy - excising all the parts of the gland superficial or lateral to the facial nerve. (wikipedia.org)
