The facial nerve controls the muscles of facial expression, paralysis which results in a lack of facial expression which is not only an aesthetic issue, but has functional consequences as the patient cannot communicate effectively. The treatment of(More)
Stains and dyes are frequently used to emphasise tissue structures for viewing under microscopy but few simple objective quantification methods exist. We describe the derivation of a mathematical formula enabling calculation of the relative contribution of three different coloured components to an image, which can be applied to rapid batch assessment of(More)
BACKGROUND Results of functional muscle transfer for the treatment of facial palsy vary. Surgical technique in such cases remains constant, with only the selected ramus of the buccal branch of the facial nerve changing. In this study, different-sized branches of the facial nerve were used to reinnervate a constant-sized muscle flap to see whether this might(More)
The long term results following the repair of open injuries to extensors carpi radialis longus and brevis and extensor carpi ulnaris have not previously been reported. A retrospective case note review was performed and patients were called back for assessment following surgical repair. Grip strength and pinch strength were reduced by 9.9% (p=0.017) and(More)
