Kayhan Ozturk, Omer Erdur, Osman Gul, Ayse Olmez
We performed endoscopic transoral neurectomy of the submandibular and sublingual glands to treat drooling. We bilaterally operated two adult cases with treatment-resistant drooling. In these patients, conventional treatment had failed. Repeated botilinum toxin type A (BOTOX®, Abdi Ibrahim Pharmaceutical Company, Istanbul, Turkey) injections had been effective but were becoming less so. The patients benefited from surgery in that their saliva scores decreased. No issue emerged over 6 months of follow-up. Endoscopic transoral neurectomy of the submandibular and sublingual glands reduces saliva production and allows management of drooling in treatment-resistant patients...

Surgery was the only effective strategy to manage EHL hyperextension before botulinum toxin's use to manage muscular dystonia and spasticity became widely popular. METHODS: A multicentre retrospective study. A standard proforma was sent to specialists in neurological rehabilitation dealing routinely with this problem...

1. In addition to the effect upon the fibers of the parasympathetic nervous system which was described in a previous report (1), the toxin of Clostridium botilinum. Types A and B, exerts an influence upon the endings of the motor fibers of the voluntary nervous system which leads to a marked susceptibility to fatigue. It has not been determined whether the damage is in the anatomical nerve endings of the somatic motor nerve fibers or upon the myoneural junction, but it is not of the nature of an organic destruction of tissue...

OBJECTIVE: In this report, we aimed to investigate the patients that presented at our clinic complaint with diplopia due to the abducens nerve palsy and neurosurgical disease. METHODS: The study design was a retrospective review of ten cases with the abducens nerve palsy. The causes of the abducens nerve paralysis of our patients were as follows: two cases with head trauma, three cases with pituitary tumors, one case with sphenoid sinus mucocele, one case with greater superficial petrosal nerve cellular schwannoma at the petrous apex, one case with hypertensive intraventricular hemmorhage, one case with hydrocephalus, and one case with parotid tumor and skull base/brain stem invasion...
