To study the electroneurographic facial muscle pattern in Bell's palsy over time, electroneurographic recordings in the frontalis, orbicularis oculi, nasalis, and mentalis muscle regions were performed early (mean, day 11) and 1 and 3 months after the onset of the condition in 30 consecutive patients. The correlation between facial muscle electroneurographic recordings over time was also calculated. An additional aim was to assess whether further prognostic information could be obtained by… CONTINUE READING
