    • Experimental model of facial paralysis by nerve compression in primates (Callithrix sp.): A new model of facial paralysis in small nonhuman primates 

      Neiva, Felipe Costa [UNIFESP]; Borin, Andrei [UNIFESP]; Cinini, Simone [UNIFESP]; Mello, Luiz Eugenio A. M. [UNIFESP]; Cruz, Oswaldo Laercio M. [UNIFESP]; Testa, Jose Ricardo G. [UNIFESP] (Informa Healthcare, 2012-11-01)
      Conclusion: We conclude that facial nerve injury induced by compression is associated with a reasonable time window (4 weeks) that allows possible neurotrophic effects to be analyzed. Additionally, there are no hints of ...
