  • Protocol
  • Overview



This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The objective of this overview is to systematically summarise and qualitatively compare interventions for the treatment of Bell's palsy, aiming to identify the most effective treatment or treatments for this condition and to identify areas for future valuable research.

We will assess whether there are differences in terms of primary (incomplete recovery) or secondary outcomes (motor synkinesis, crocodile tears, persistent complete facial paralysis, treatment side effects).
