Facial nerve recovery
Long-Term Functional Recovery after Facial Nerve Transection and Repair in the Rat
Objective To establish whether daily mechanical stimulation improves functional recovery of whisking after facial nerve transection injury and repair in rats.
The present report demonstrates that daily mechanical whisker stimulation significantly improves recovery of whisking after facial nerve transection/ repair in .
Description:Methods Adult rats were divided into group 1 controls and group 2 experimental. It supplies the muscles of facial expression and the muscles used to close the eyes. This patient should be advised to start taking her prednisolone immediately, to take care to protect her eye and to rest. Subsequently, all rats underwent surgical insertion of a light-weight titanium head implant that provided a set of four external attachment points for rigid head fixation, as previously described 19 ,
