Microvascular decompression (MVD) of the trigeminal nerve is a well-accepted nondestructive procedure for trigeminal neuralgia. Usually, Teflon (PTFE) puff or felt graft techniques, which are most commonly used, are associated with arachnoiditis and recurrence among other complications. We use the "sleeve graft" technique using PTFE to separate the neurovascular conflict and here we describe our experience with the same in 376 cases.
