32 : GANGLIA ASSOCIATED WITH THE FACIAL NERVE Geniculate ganglion Submandibular ganglion Pterygopalatine ganglion
36 : VARIATIONS OF FACIAL NERVES Buccal branch usually single, two branches in 15% cases Marginal mandibular branch – pass bellow the lower border of mandibal, incident varying between 20-50% Cervical branch – 20% cases, two branches 4. Katz and Catalano (14) reported three cases (3%) presenting two main trunks, known as the major and minor trunks of facial nerve. 5. Baker and Conley (17) reported trifurcation, quadrifurcation, or even a plexiform branching pattern of the trunk of the facial nerve

40 : Variations in Intraparotid Portion of Facial Nerve Class 1:Facial nerves without anastomoses between branches after their initial branching from the nerve trunk. (Type 1): Classical variety (Type 2): Variety with precocious branching (Type 3): Rare variety with ladder-like branching . Class 2.:Facial nerves with anastomoses between the cervicotemporal branches (Type 4): Variety with long anastomotic loops (Type 5): Variety with short anastomotic loops between the cervical and temporal branches Source: Illustrated Encyclopedia of Human Anatomic Variation: Opus III: Nervous System Ronald A. Bergman, PhD
41 : Variation of marginal mandibular branch I) The MMB showed one (28%), two (52%), three (18%), or four branches (2%) where it exited the parotid gland. II) Type I (60%) did not communicate with other branches. Type II (40%) communicated with the buccal or cervical branches, or with another branch of the MMB III) The MMB pass the facial artery superficially (42%), deeply in 4%, and on both sides of it in 54% of the facial halves Source: Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery: March 2010 - Volume 125 – Issue 3 - pp 879-889
43 : TESTING OF FACIAL NERVE TOPOGNOSTIC TESTING 1. Schirmer test for lacrimation (GSPN) 2. Stapedial reflex test (Stapedial branch) 3. Taste testing (Chorda tympani nerve) 4. Salivary flow rates & pH (Chorda tympani) ELECTROPHYSIOLOGIC TEST Nerve excitability test (NET) Electromyography(EMG) Maximal stimulation test (MST) Electroneuronography (ENoG) DYES
44 : Schirmer test
45 : ENOG
46 : NET
47 : MST
48 : IDENTIFICATION OF FACIAL NERVES 3 surgical maneuvers used to identify nerve trunk Blood free plane in front of external acoustic meatus Exposure of anterior border of SCM below insertion into mastoid process Peripheral identification of terminal branch of facial nerve (marginal mandibular branch)
49 : COMPLICATION OF FACIAL NERVES DISSECTION Dissected in superficial parotidectomy operation Facial weakness (lower lip on affected side) Temporary and reversible demyelination of nerve fibers
51 : FACIAL NERVES LESION Supranuclear type Features – Paralysis of lower part of face (opposite side) Partial paralysis of upper part of face Normal taste and saliva secretion Stapedius not paralysed
52 : Nuclear type Features – Paralysis of facial muscle (same side) Paralysis of lateral rectus Internal strabismus
53 : Peripheral lesion At internal acoustic meatus Feature – Paralysis of secretomotor fibers Hyper acusis Loss of corneal reflex Taste fibers unaffected Facial expression and movements paralysed Lesion at int acoustic meatus
54 : Injury distal to geniculate ganglion Feature – Complete motor paralysis (same side) No hyper acusis Loss of corneal reflex Taste fibers affected Facial expression and movements paralysed Pronounced reaction of degeneration Lesion distal to geniculate ganglion
55 : Injury at stylomastoid foramen Condition known as Bell’s Palsy
56 : Unilateral involvement Inability to smile, close eye or raise eyebrow Whistling impossible Drooping of corner of the mouth Inability to close eyelid (Bell’s sign) Inability to wrinkle forehead Loss of blinking reflex Slurred speech Mask like appearance of face Loss/ alteration of taste
57 : In case of children the mastoid process not well developed Facial nerve affected by cold exposure or injured during surgical interference
58 : House-Brackmann Facial Nerve Grading System
59 : Trauma: Transverse fractures  (40-50%). Symptoms: hemotympanum (blood behind the tympanic membrane) sensory deafness vertigo
60 : Longitudinal fracture : Symptoms: a) hematorrhea (blood coming out of the external auditory meatus) b) tympanic membrane tear, c) fracture ofexternal auditory canal d) conductive hearing loss
61 : Herpes zoster oticus (Ramsay Hunt syndrome type II) Symptoms: facial paralysis ear pain vesicles, sensorineural hearing loss  vertigo
62 : Acute and chronic otitis media Otitis media is an infection in the middle ear, which can spread to the facial nerve and inflame it, causing compression of the nerve in its canal.
63 : Neurosarcoidosis Facial nerve paralysis, sometimes bilateral, is a common manifestation of neurosarcoidosis  (sarcoidosis of the nervous system), itself a rare condition.
64 : Tumors A tumor compressing the facial nerve result in facial paralysis. Egs:  facial neuromas congenital cholesteatomas hemangiomas, acoustic neuromas  parotid gland neoplasms, or metastases of other tumours.
65 : CONGENITAL ANOMALIES Moebius syndrome(cong facial diplegia) – Abnormal VI ,VII,XII N nuclei – FN absent / smaller – Cong. Extra ocular muscle & facial palsy
66 : Treacher collins syn(mandibulo facial dysostosis) Goldenhars syn(oculoauriculo vertebral dysplasia)
67 : CONCLUSION Facial nerve controls all the involuntary and voluntary movements of facial muscles. The knowledge of surgical anatomy of the facial nerve and its correlations with the parotid gland and facial muscles are very important for an adequate preservation in the cases of surgery in this area. The iatrogenic injury in this facial region is very common. The choice of the surgical approach is very relevant in the parotid surgery because of the extreme anatomic variability of the parotideal area and the functional importance of the branches of facial nerve.
