mporary cerebral spinal fluid leakage, which can be controlled with a drain.

"Deciding on surgery should be an individual decision, and a physician should at least offer that option to patients if they are potentially going to have a poor outcome," Gantz said. "I would hope that neurologists and family medicine physicians, who are the ones that see most of the facial paralysis, would recognize that there are some test strategies that can differentiate those patients who may have a poor outcome.
