Atlas of Facial Nerve Surgeries and Reanimation Procedures is more than a project for the author. It is the culmination of her passion, as well as lifelong quest and pursuit, for perfecting the execution of management of facial nerve in different situations. The main objective of this atlas is to provide an insight to the reader regarding the anatomy and normal functioning of the facial nerve, besides a guidance on step-wise evaluation and management of facial palsy, aimed at achieving optimal results. The elaborate description about the post-treatment recovery of the functioning of facial nerve and facial muscles is an important highlight of this atlas.
The text in this atlas gives a concise description of the principles of management of facial nerve and the steps of surgery; at the same time, a major focus has been placed on surgical images and diagrams to provide the reader with a pictorial view of the procedural intricacies involved in the surgery and facial nerve management. The diagrams have been specifically drawn by the author herself to depict a simplified representation of the steps, and to emphasize the key technical points involved in them.
