Incidence of Displacement of Facial Nerve Trunk from Normal Anatomical Position in Cases of Benign Tumour in Superficial Lobe of Parotid Gland: A Surgical Finding and its Significance

paraphrased gland's surgical significance, according to the purpose of the current analysis, it was found out that facial nerve trunk displacement from its normal anatomical position in relation to both size and location of tumour formation in the superficial lobe of parotid gland. paraphrased gland's superficial lobe of parotid gland: 60 patients were included in the current study, including 60 patients who underwent superficial parotidectomy for benign tumor affecting the superficial lobe of parotid gland. We conclude that the facial nerve trunk cannot be properly traced at normal anatomical positions because of its displacement by tumour. 7 out of 13 patients with tumor superior to facial nerve trunk were losing displacement, 7 out of 18 had deviation with tumor inferior to nerve, and 6 out of 29 patients had deviation from normal anatomical position, while 6 out of 29 patients had deviation of central trunk when the tumor contained whole of superficial lobe of gland.
