Microvascular decompression (MVD) is now the most feasible method of treatment for trigeminal neuralgia (TN). The recurrence of symptoms is rarely encountered postoperatively. A female patient with typical right V3 distribution TN had been successfully treated by MVD at age 56 years by transposing the offending superior cerebellar artery, and she became(More)
BACKGROUND Microvascular decompression (MVD) has been established as an effective treatment for hemifacial spasm (HFS). However, replacement of bilateral vertebral arteries (VAs) from the root exit zone (REZ) is difficult and requires special techniques. Reports of HFS cases associated with bilateral VA compression are quite rare. This study investigated(More)
Reappearance of symptoms of cranial nerve dysfunction is not uncommon after successful microvascular decompression (MVD). The purpose of this study was to report two quite unusual cases of recurrent and newly developed hemifacial spasm (HFS) caused by a new conflicting artery more than 20 years after the first successful surgery. In Case 1, the first MVD(More)
BACKGROUND The anterior inferior cerebellar artery-posterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA-PICA) common trunk anomaly is reportedly one of the most common vessel variants in the posterior circulation, but reports of hemifacial spasm (HFS) associated with AICA-PICA common trunk are very rare. In the present study, we describe methods of microvascular(More)
