1. Grading facial nerve function: why a new grading system, the MoReSS, should be proposed.
Match Strength: 8.818
OBJECTIVE: To compare the interobserver variability of a new grading system to the currently recommended House-Brackmann Grading Scale. STUDY DESIGN: Prospective case-control study. SETTING: Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS: All patients with a facial nerve paresis/paralysis (whatever the cause). INTERVENTION: All patients were evaluated for their facial nerve function by three observers, independently, using both the new system and the House-Brackmann Grading Scale. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: The level of agreement between the three observers using both scales. RESULTS: With the movement, rest, ... Read More »

2. Changes in corneal topography with upper eyelid gold weight implants.
Match Strength: 7.833
PURPOSE: To determine the effect of upper eyelid gold weight implantation on corneal astigmatism. METHODS: This is a prospective, cohort study. Eighteen eyes of 18 patients underwent upper eyelid gold weight implantation for facial nerve palsy. Nine of these patients recovered facial nerve function and underwent elective removal of the gold weight. Corneal topography was performed before and after gold weight implantation. Corneal topography was also performed after gold weight removal in patients who recovered from facial nerve paralysis. RESULTS: With-the-rule corneal astigmatism increased ... Read More »

3. Incidence and characteristics of facial nerve stimulation in children with cochlear implants.
Match Strength: 7.672
OBJECTIVES: Electrical stimulation from a cochlear implant can spread beyond the auditory nerve. The aims of this study were to accurately measure facial nerve stimulation in pediatric implant users and to determine the characteristics and incidence of this unwanted activity. Part A consisted of a prospective study of a randomized sample of 44 pediatric implant users. Part B consisted of a retrospective analysis of 121 children with previously recorded electrically evoked auditory brainstem responses (EABR). STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: Responses were evoked by 3 electrodes along the implant ... Read More »
