An alternative approach, using a combination of nerve crossover and cross-nerve grafting technique in a single-stage procedure, was developed for the reconstruction of reversible facial palsy. This combined technique provides some benefits such as early facial reanimation resulting from the single-stage procedure, less morbidity and sufficient innervation(More)

The vascular anatomy of the galeal frontalis flap was studied in 12 fresh cadavers by an intraarterial dye injection technique. Special attention was directed to the length limit of this flap. The general belief that the galeal frontalis flap has a robust vascularity by means of the supratrochlear and supraorbital arteries was not demonstrated in this(More)
