Bell’s Palsy Market Performance in 15 Major Markets Reviewed by Black Swan Analysis in Its Report Published at MarketPublishers.com

17 Feb 2017 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Bell's palsy, otherwise known as idiopathic facial paralysis (IFP), attacks nearly 40,000 Americans annually. It afflicts both women and men of all ages, but it is not widespread before the age of 15 or over the age of 60.  It disproportionately affects diabetic people or those with upper respiratory disorders like a cold or the flu.

In most instances, a Bell's palsy is a one-off event. Around 1 in 14 affected people can have further episodes some time or other in the offing, frequently several years after.

The treatment of the disease is mainly aimed at improving facial/cranial nerve function, decreasing neuronal damage, and preventing complications from corneal exposure.

Treatment encompasses corticosteroid therapy, antiviral agents, and eye care. Surgical treatment modes comprise facial nerve decompression, implantable devices put into the eyelid, facial nerve grafting, tarsorrhaphy, and direct brow lift, among others.

New report “Epiomic Epidemiology Series: Bell's Palsy Forecast in 15 Major Markets 2017-2027” drawn up by Black Swan Analysis canvasses the present-day incident population for Bell's palsy across 15 leading country markets, dissected by gender and 5-year age group. It provides current incidence rates, presents an all-round overview of the disease risk factors, diagnosis and prognosis as well as specific variations by ethnicity and geographic region/country. 

The research study casts light on some of the key symptoms and co-morbidities of IFP and also provides the overall incidence rates. It analyses the sub-populations in IFP country-wise alongside providing detailed 10-year forecasts.
