Cross-face nerve graft treated
People treated by a solitary cross-face nerve graft or in combination with another procedure.
Procedure: Cross-face nerve graft
connecting the healthy facial nerve to the affected facial nerve
People treated with a solitary hypoglossal-facial anastomosis.
- Symmetry of the mouth [ Time Frame: March 2016 - October 2016 ]Symmetry of the mouth expressed as the difference in millimeters between the position of the affected and the healthy corner of the mouth on a picture. An ideal symmetry would be 0 mm. Measured with the FACE-gram software.
- Excursion of the mouth [ Time Frame: March 2016 - October 2016 ]Excursion of the mouth expressed as the difference in millimeters between the position of the affected corner of the mouth in repose and with smile on a picture. Measured with the FACE-gram software.
- Disease-specific quality-of-life [ Time Frame: March 2016 - October 2016 ]A validated self-reported disease-specific quality-of-life questionnaire was used (Facial Clinimetric Evaluation scale). On which patients can score anything between 0 and 100 points (100 being healty).
