Braz J Otorhinolaryngol. 2024;90:101381

  • Endoscopes can generate thermal injury and tissue functional impairment.

  • Hyperthermia can influence the responses both cochlear nerve and the brainstem.

  • Caliber and angulation of the endoscope influences the thermal variation.

  • Type and intensity of the light source influences the thermal variation.

  • Large-caliber endoscopes with xenon or halogen light generate more heat.

  • This is an evidence-based review on the recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of Peripheral Facial Palsy (PFP).

  • The diagnosis of PFP is based on epidemiological data, medical history, and physical examination.

  • As the nerve regenerate, neural desynchronization and muscle depolarization occurs at different intervals.

  • Surgical decompression of the facial nerve is suggested when electrophysiologic testing shows degeneration greater than 90%.
