FNP is a disease entity seen in a variety of clinical settings. We recommend early ENoG evaluation of every total facial nerve paralysis to assess the percentage of degeneration. ENoG is an objective, permanent record with prognostic significance especially in 16% of those patients who are predicted to have a poor outcome without further intervention. In consultation with the patient a treatment plan can thus be proposed to optimize the opportunity for recovery.
