PURPOSE: Two-stage facial reanimation procedures with a cross-facial nerve graft often yield less predictable results in older patients due to multifactorial reasons. Some studies strongly suggest that increased donor nerve axonal load improves function of a free muscle transfer after a crossfacial nerve graft. However, strong studies characterizing the relationship between age and facial nerve axonal counts do not exist, possibly providing an explanation for the variable results as we age.
