Whatever the cause, the consequences for the patient can be devastating depending on the level of facial dysfunction. Several modalities exist to clinically rate the degree of facial function; including the widely used House-Brackman classification. The House-Brackmann scale is a nerve grading system developed in by Los Angeles otolaryngologists Dr. John W. House and Dr. Derald E. Normal tone and symmetry at rest.

Complete closure of the eye without effort. Slight asymmetry of the mouth when facial movements occur. Grade III: Assigned to patients dealing with moderate dysfunction; these patients generally do not display any noticeable facial weakness with synkinesis, they maintain complete eye closure and good forehead movement with effort. Grade IV: Assigned to patients dealing with severe dysfunction.

Obvious facial weakness. Incomplete eye closure, no forehead movement, asymmetrical mouth movement, and synkinesis. Grade V: Assigned to patients who have little to no ability to smile, frown or make other facial expressions. The closure of the eye is incomplete, and there is no forehead movement. Grade VI: No facial motion. One point is assigned for every 0.

The scores are then added together, resulting in a House-Brackmann score. Is the House-Brackmann Scale Accurate? However, it is important to note that the House-Brackmann classification offers only six grades. It is therefore crucial for a facial paralysis patient to meet with an expert facial paralysis and reconstructive surgeon, like Dr. During a first consultation with Dr. Azizzadeh, a facial paralysis patient will receive a full evaluation.

Then, Dr. Azizzadeh offers a personalized treatment plan to help his patient address his or her facial paralysis. The Facial Paralysis Institute is the pre-eminent Center for patients needing treatment for facial paralysis.

House–Brackmann score

House Brackmann House-Brackmann Facial nerve dysfunction facial paralysis manifests in various symptom patterns. To objectively describe facial function, clinicians use a number of standardised scales - the most common being the House-Brackmann facial nerve grading system. Symptoms of facial nerve injury may vary due to age, facial anatomy and the extent of nerve-damage. Frequent patient concerns relate to brow position, movement abnormalities, eyelid closure issues, inability to smile, mid-facial asymmetries, poor oral function and lower lip asymmetry. A light degree of facial nerve weakness may only be visible as subtle asymmetries following repeated and exhausting muscle function, whereas severe dysfunction can be easily recognised even at rest. Many of these symptoms will change over time, for example following a spontaneous recovery of nerve function or as a result of different therapeutic modalities i.
