In this book, there is literally something for everyone who deals with facial nerve problems. There are accounts of varied research experiences, several up-to-date reviews regarding recurrent facial palsy, facial paralysis in otitis media, and facial nerve lesions of the temporal bone, and clinical results for standard and newer treatment modalities. Graham and House have expertly edited a "state-of-the-art" text on this subject, drawing on the many papers and abstracts presented at the fourth International Symposium on Facial Nerve Surgery. Although the reader will not find answers to many controversial problems, he will find an important contribution to our understanding of anatomy and pathophysiology and a good balance between papers presenting surgical v nonsurgical treatments of facial paralysis, with their respective results enabling better treatment decisions.

This book is divided into 11 sections, comprising 81 papers in 542 pages of text. The first four sections are important reading for both
