Facial Nerve Mapping

Mount Sinai Health System

This illustration depicts the use of facial nerve mapping during the surgical removal of a pediatric hemangioma. Management of these vascular malformations pose treatment challenges due to the lesions' expansive growth, resistance to treatment, and the relationship to the facial nerves. For more information, please see the publication: Ulkatan S et al. New methodology for facial nerve monitoring in extracranial surgeries of vascular malformations, in Clinical Neurophysiology (2013).
