Abstract

Facial Nerve (FN) paralysis and its morbidities can result from a wide variety of etiologies. Several novel surgical procedure methods for remediation of FN paralysis problems, using Incisionless technique are presented. The procedures are minimally-invasive and well-tolerated by patients. The Incisionless procedures achieve basic resuspension of the major orbital and oral morbidities associated with FN paralysis.
