The long-term outcome of microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia.
BACKGROUND Several surgical procedures to treat trigeminal neuralgia (tic douloureux) are available, but most reports provide only short-term follow-up information. METHODS We describe theExpand
Etiology and definitive microsurgical treatment of hemifacial spasm. Operative techniques and results in 47 patients.
The clinical and operative findings are reviewed in 47 patients with intractable hemifacial spasm. The syndrome was classical in its features in 45 patients and atypical in two. MechanicalExpand
Microvascular decompression of cranial nerves: lessons learned after 4400 operations.
OBJECT Microvascular decompression has become an accepted surgical technique for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, glossopharyngeal neuralgia, and other cranial nerveExpand
Microvascular decompression for hemifacial spasm.
The authors report the results of 782 microvascular decompression procedures for hemifacial spasm in 703 patients (705 sides), with follow-up study from 1 to 20 years (mean 8 years). Of 648 patientsExpand
Neurovascular Compression in Cranial Nerve and Systemic Disease
As we age, our arteries elongate and our brains “sag.” As a consequence of these processes, redundant arterial loops and bridging or intrinsic hindbrain veins may cause cross-compression of cranialExpand
Observations on the etiology of trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, acoustic nerve dysfunction and glossopharyngeal neuralgia. Definitive microsurgical treatment and results in 117 patients.
Microsurgical observations have been made of the cranial nerve root entry or exit zones 117 patients operated upon for the treatment of hyperactive-hypoactive dysfunction syndromes (trigeminalExpand
Interpretation of brainstem auditory evoked potentials: results from intracranial recordings in humans.
The results of recording intracranially from the auditory nerve, lower brainstem nuclei, and the inferior colliculus in more than 40 patients operated upon for hemifacial spasm and trigeminalExpand
Neurogenic Hypertension: Etiology and Surgical Treatment I. Observations in 53 Patients
Although an extensive literature exists concerning essential arterial hypertension, the primary etiology has been unclear. Arterial compression of the left lateral medulla oblongata by loopingExpand
Transplantation of cultured human neuronal cells for patients with stroke
Article abstract Transplantation of cultured neuronal cells is safe in animal models and improves motor and cognitive deficits in rats with stroke. The authors studied the safety and feasibility ofExpand
