Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a disease characterized by recurring, short-lived, electric shock-like pain experienced on one side of the face. Microvascular decompression (MVD) is one of the most effective surgical interventions for resolving TN caused by neurovascular compression. This study aimed to determine the predictive and prognostic factors of surgical outcomes.
