From the use of specialist facial therapy and concurrent chemodenervation to the surgical revolution of selective neurolysis, synkinesis management is rapidly evolving as better tools become available to diagnose, assess, and personalize care. Management of Post-Facial Paralysis Synkinesis is the first book to focus exclusively on this common consequence of facial paralysis, providing authoritative coverage of recent advances in assessment as well as non-surgical and surgical treatment. Drs. Babak Azizzadeh and Charles Nduka lead an author team of international, multidisciplinary experts who fully explore the causes, clinical presentations, and management of synkinesis.
