Useful surgical techniques for facial nerve preservation in tumorous intra-temporal lesions.

Auris Nasus Larynx 2010 Feb 17;37(1):33-41. Epub 2009 May 17.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Republic of Korea.

The management of the facial nerve in tumorous temporal lesions is particularly challenging due to its complex anatomic location and potential postoperative complications, including permanent facial paralysis. The most important concern regarding surgical treatment of a tumorous temporal lesion is the inevitable facial paralysis caused by nerve injury during the tumor removal, especially in patients with minimal to no preoperative facial nerve dysfunction. We describe successful four cases in which various surgical techniques were developed for the preservation of the facial nerve in treatment of intratemporal tumorous lesions. Read More

Side-to-end hypoglossal-facial anastomosis via transposition of the intratemporal facial nerve.

Acta Neurochir (Wien) 2006 Jun 23;148(6):653-7; discussion 657. Epub 2006 Feb 23.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Cervicofacial Surgery, Maribor University Hospital, Maribor, Slovenia.

The technique of facial nerve repair with side-to-end hypoglossal-facial anastomosis is presented and evaluated in five patients who were operated on for facial nerve paralysis after acoustic schwannoma surgery, or had cranial base trauma. The end-to-end hypoglossal-facial anastomosis is accompanied by hemilingual paralysis, with difficulty in swallowing, chewing and speaking. In this new technique, the facial nerve is mobilised in the temporal bone, transected at the second genu and transposed to the hypoglossal nerve where a tensionless side-to-end anastomosis is performed.
