Health Info : Facial Paralysis

Do you know the meaning of "Facial Paralysis"? or have you ever heard about this words 'facial paralysis'? Maybe you haven't. That is because there aren't so many information about this disease. I just found this great site www.facialparalysisinstitute.com that give me a lot of information about facial paralysis.

Facial Paralysis is a condition where a person feels there is something that prevents them to move their face muscles thus limited the movement of their face like having difficulty in speaking such as difficult to spell some words. The number one cause of facial paralysis in the U.S is Bell’s Palsy, and the other causes are trauma, tumours, infection, salivary gland inflammation, congenital cause like Moebius syndrome and so forth. Recent research have shown that Bell’s palsy occurs when a virus (herpes simplex virus, HSV) gets reactivated in the bone behind the ear (temporal bone.) When the nerve gets reactivated and swollen, it ends up causing the nerve to essentially “shut down”.

The surgical treatment of facial paralysis is extremely challenging. Many factors will influence the management of patients with paralysis. Surgical treatment must be tailored to each patient. Every patient will have different concerns and issues. Treatment is based on the following: Etiology of paralysis, Degree of paralysis, Duration of paralysis and the patient’s age. The most important treatment objective for individuals with facial paralysis is prevention of unwanted eye complications, restoration and reconstruction of facial movement, restoration of a dynamic smile, and improvement of facial aesthetics and symmetry.
