HONTANILLA CALATAYUD, B. et al. Protocol in surgical treatment of facial paralysis after 140 treated cases. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2008, vol.34, n.3, pp.185-200. ISSN 0376-7892.
The aim of this study is to present our protocol in the surgical treatment of facial paralysis after 140 treated cases since 2000 to 2007. The protocol is based on the results obtained with a new 3-D capture system of the facial movement called "Facial Clima", that could be considered as the adequate tool to assess the outcome of the facial paralysis reanimation surgery. Thus, patients with facial paralysis could be compared among surgical centres such that effectiveness of facial reanimation operations could be evaluated. The results obtained are exposed for smile and lid reconstruction.
