Endoscopic Vascular Decompression for the Treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia: Clinical Outcomes and Technical Note.



Microvascular decompression (MVD) surgery is considered as an effective method with which to treat trigeminal neuralgia (TN). However, sometimes MVD surgery fails due to incomplete decompression of the responsible vessels caused by a poor visual field. In this study, we evaluated the benefits of endoscopic visualization and the value of full endoscopic vascular decompression (EVD) by describing the surgical results of 20 patients with TN after EVD.
