Special Issue Introduction:

This special issue is about current and contemporary surgical procedures for facial paralysis (both congenital and acquired). Some of the topics include: static and dynamic facial reanimationprocedures (such as cross face nerve grafts, baby sitter procedures, free muscle transfers). Other topics include sensitive facial restoration (trigeminal nerve procedures), corneal neurotization and direct muscle neurotization. As for peripheral nerve clinical conditions, topics include: current trends in nerve injury repair (both in upper and lower limbs), treatment of compressive neuropathies (nerve compression syndromes) brachialplexo pathies (brachialplexus injuries in general), as well as experimental studies regarding nerve regeneration and nerve microenvironment.
