Microvascular decompression is a safe and effective treatment for trigeminal neuralgia, with a high rate of long-term success, and the annual rate of the recurrence of tic was less than 1 percent after surgery.

Microvascular decompression is a safe and definitive treatment for hemifacial spasm with proven long-term efficacy and men had better results than women, and patients with typical onset of symptoms had betterresults than those with atypical onset.
Endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery: experience with 50 patients.
Postoperatively, all patients who had undergone endonasal endoscopic surgery had unobstructed nasal airways with minimal discomfort and more than half of the patients required only an overnight hospitalization.
Endoscopic pituitary surgery: an early experience.
Vascular decompression surgery for severe tinnitus: Selection criteria and results
Of the 72 patients who were operated on and followed, 32 were women, and 54.8% experienced total relief from tinnitus or marked improvement, while only 29.3% of the men showed such relief or improvement.

Endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery in this series resulted with comparable surgical outcomes to conventional microscopic transspenoidal surgery, and patients' quick recovery, short hospital stays, and minimal postoperative discomfort have been observed.
Endoscopic Endonasal Approach to the Ventral Cranio-Cervical Junction: Anatomical Study
This cadaver study demonstrates that an endoscopic endonasal approach to the ventral cranio-cervical junction and odontoid process can be a valid alternative to the conventional transoral approach.
Microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia caused by vertebrobasilar compression.
Patients with typical trigeminal neuralgia who underwent microvascular decompression between 1972 and 1993 were found to have vascular compression by the vertebral artery (VA) or the basilar artery (BA), and patients should be warned that decompression of a tortuous vertebrobasilar system carries a higher risk of mild triggeminal dysfunction, diplopia, and hearing loss than standard microv vascular decompression.
Endoscopy assisted transsphenoidal surgery for pituitary adenoma
Although it is early in the experience with a small number of patients, the short-term surgical results have been encouraging with patients' short hospital stay and minimum morbidity.
Saphenous vein graft bypass of the cavernous internal carotid artery.
Saphenous vein graft reconstruction was performed from the petrous to the supraclinoid internal carotid artery to replace the cavernous ICA in six patients during direct intracavernous operations, and three patients who had severe reduction of cerebral blood flow during test occlusion of the ICA exhibited temporary hemispheric neurological deficits postoperatively.
