Objectives: A meta-analysis was conducted on the outcome of facial nerve function after hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis in humans. The roles of the timing of and the underlying cause for surgery, the type of the repair, and previous facial nerve function in the final result were analyzed. Methods: Articles were identified by means of a PubMed search using the key words “facial-hypoglossal anastomosis,” which yielded 109 articles. The data were pooled from existing literature written in… Expand
Facial reanimation using hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis after schwannoma removal
TLDR
The split type hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis resulted in more favorable outcomes in terms of both facial function and tongue atrophy, and which technique achieves better facial outcomes and less tongue morbidity is evaluated. Expand
Hemihypoglossal-Facial Nerve Anastomosis for Facial Nerve Reanimation: Case Series and Technical Note.
TLDR
Hemihypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis is an effective technique for facial nerve reanimation with acceptable morbidity related to tongue function and patients with a longer duration of facial palsy still have a good chance for restoration of facial movement but require longer recovery periods. Expand
Hypoglossal-Facial Anastomosis for Facial Nerve Reconstruction: Outcomes using the Side-to-End Surgical Technique
TLDR
Hypoglossal-facial anastomosis with the terminolateral technique has good results and low morbidity in relation to tongue motility and swallowing problems and recovery appear to be better in patients operated on with a shorter paralysis time. Expand
RESULTS OF STUDY OF THE HYPOGLOSSAL NERVE FUNCTIONS IN PATIENTS AFTER HYPOGLOSSAL-FACIAL ANASTOMOSIS
Hypoglossal-facial anastomosis is a common method of restoring and/or replacing lost facial nerve function. At the same time, there are works that compare functional disorders of the XII pair ofExpand
Side-to-end hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis for facial paralysis : a meta-analysis
To assess the efficacy and safety of side-to-end Hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis (HFA) in the treatment of facial paralysis. Methods: We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, www.clinicaltrials.gov, theExpand
A comparative retrospective study: hypoglossofacial versus masseterofacial nerve anastomosis using Sunnybrook facial grading system
TLDR
A retrospective study of 13 patients treated for complete facial paralysis in two medical tertiary centers showed that both types of anastomosis are effective with comparable results. Expand
Masseter-to-Facial Cranial Nerve Anastomosis: A Report of 30 Cases.
TLDR
The results of the V to VII anastomosis demonstrate a significant improvement of facial nerve function and virtually no complications. Expand
Outcomes of Direct Facial-to-Hypoglossal Neurorrhaphy with Parotid Release.
TLDR
Direct facial-hypoglossal neurorrhaphy with parotid release achieved a functional reinnervation and good clinical outcome in the majority of patients, with minimal lingual morbidity. Expand
Facial reanimation by hypoglossal- facial neurorrhaphy
Objective: Facial palsy may still occur after removal of large vestibular schwannomas. The aim of this paper is to describe the outcome of patients submitted to facial reanimation and make a conciseExpand
Facial reanimation with end-to-end hypoglossofacial anastomosis: 20 years’ experience
TLDR
Despite such morbidities as disarticulation and tongue numbness, end-to-end hypoglossofacial anastomosis is still an effective procedure for the surgical rehabilitation of static and dynamic facial nerve functions. Expand

[Hypoglossal-facial anastomosis. A report of 60 cases].
TLDR
In view of these good results and the limited adverse effects, hypoglosso-facial anastomosis must be part of the therapeutic strategy of total, permanent facial paralysis and especially the patient's psychological must be integrated in this nerve transfer. Expand
Hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis for facial nerve palsy following surgery for cerebellopontine angle tumors.
TLDR
Good or fair results were achieved in 17 (77.3%) of the 22 cases, and thus hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis is considered an effective procedure for most patients with facial palsy after surgery for cerebellopontine angle tumors. Expand
Hypoglossofacial anastomosis for facial palsy after resection of acoustic neuroma.
TLDR
The effect of the duration of the paralysis of the facial nerve seems to be less important in facial nerve surgery than in nerve surgery of the extremities. Expand
Hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis: assessment of clinical results and patient benefit for facial nerve palsy following acoustic neuroma excision.
TLDR
Outcome was not affected by the time interval between the acoustic neuroma surgery and performing the hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis, sex or length of follow-up, however the Glasgow benefit score was significantly influenced by age with younger patients showing more benefit independent of improvement in facial nerve function. Expand
Hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis. Clinical observation.
TLDR
The overall results were better in patients who underwent this procedure within 3 months after surgery for acoustic neuroma as compared with those who did so after 1 year or more. Expand
A New Technique for Hypoglossal‐Facial Nerve Repair
TLDR
The authors conclude that by employing the techniques described highly satisfactory cosmetic and functional results may be expected, without compromising hypoglossal nerve function. Expand
Hemihypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis in treating unilateral facial palsy after acoustic neurinoma resection.
TLDR
It was concluded that hemihypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis results in good facial reanimation as long as the procedure is performed early after the onset of facial palsy and that this procedure may reduce the degree of hemiglossal atrophy in comparison with classic hypoglossAL-f facial nerve anASTomosis. Expand
Reanimation of the paralyzed face by indirect hypoglossal-facial nerve anastomosis.
TLDR
Indirect hypoglossal-facialAnastomosis is the preferred technique in most patients for whom the classical direct hypoglossofacial anastomoses is indicated and was significantly better in young patients and when a short time interval between paralysis and surgery existed. Expand
Management of Intratemporal Facial Nerve Schwannoma
TLDR
It would be better to consider an alternative method for preserving the facial nerve in cases with good facial nerve function, and when facial nerve paralysis has developed to more than House-Brackmann grade III, an immediate operation is recommended to obtain a good postoperative facial functional recovery. Expand
A Comparison of Surgical Techniques Used in Dynamic Reanimation of the Paralyzed Face
TLDR
End-to-end anastomosis confers the best facial function, followed by cable nerve graft interposition and then classic faciohypoglossal transposition, and contrary to some previous opinions, improvement in facial function can still occur 2 years after surgical repair, particularly with classic faciospecific transposition.
