The purpose of the VIIth overseas Symposium at the Facial Nerve used to be to create a platform for an intensive trade of data and clinical infor­ mation among clinicians and uncomplicated examine employees. This target may possibly purely be discovered at the foundation of a typical curiosity within the facial nerve, which unites the interdisciplinary medical efforts of otologists, neurosurgeons, facial plastic surgeons, neurologists, neurophysiologists, and neuroanatomists. for that reason, a gathering of this type is still in its target to switch principles over clinical disciplines which don't come particular jointly basic stipulations. The symposium has been held each 4 years given that 1966. The VIIth sym­ posium used to be preceded by means of symposia in Stockholm (1966), Osaka (1970), ZUrich (1976), l. a.

The symposium happened within the region of the previous cllthedral of Cologne, itself a shiny image of unending efforts to create anything excellent and lasting.
