Smile Assessment After Facial Reanimation Surgery Using a Manual Time-Stamping Technique

Researchers developed an objective smile assessment method for evaluating the success of facial reanimation surgery for facial palsy. A blinded assessor viewed videos of patient spontaneous smile assays and noted time periods of smile commissure movement on the healthy side (yellow bars) and affected half side (green bars if movement present, red if movement absent), and a mean was calculated, yielding an overall percentage of smiles within the video clip that demonstrated synchronous oral commissure movements. Click the related article link for full details of the technique and for video illustration of the technique in a pediatric patient.
