Abstract

Duration of the preoperative facial nerve deficit emerged as the most important factor influencing final results. According to the authors' data, the 1-year period after the occurrence of the preoperative clinical deficit seemed to be the cutoff point in achieving a high rate of good postoperative recovery. Among the other factors that might have influenced the final outcome, only the underlying cause of the lesion played a significant role.
