Thirty-seven patients with acute Bell's palsy who had complete unilateral facial paralysis were selected for this study. Evoked electromyography, conduction latency, electromyography, and nerve excitability testing was done by one author while the maximal stimulation test was done by another on each patient. The patients were examined within ten days of onset of facial paralysis and evaluated six months after onset to determine the degree of recovery of facial motor function. The results of the… CONTINUE READING
