BACKGROUND There are few data describing the microanatomy of the anterior-ventral spinal (AVSA) and anterior spinal arteries (ASA) and discussing their clinical and surgical implications. We describe the anatomical features of this arterial complex, and highlight their use when planning and performing surgical approaches to lesions involving the ventral(More)
BACKGROUND There are few reports on the outcome of surgical treatment of TGN without vascular compression. METHODS Between 1984 and 2004, 668 patients underwent MVD for TGN. In 21 patients (3.1%), vascular compression was absent. The surgical strategy in these cases involved the following: (1) dissection and exposure of the entire trigeminal nerve root;(More)
OBJECTIVE Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) surgical treatment with microvascular decompression is highly effective and safe, but for a percentage of patients who undergo this procedure, no vascular compression is found. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term efficacy with trigeminal root compression of the trigeminal nerve in patients with TN(More)
Induced deformation of the cranial vault is one form of permanent alteration of the body that has been performed by human beings from the beginning of history as a way of differentiating from others. These procedures have been observed in different cultures, but were particularly widespread in Mesoamerica. The authors examined and reviewed the historical(More)
BACKGROUND Hemifacial spasm is characterized by unilateral, paroxysmal, and involuntary contractions. It is more common in women on the left side. Its evolution is progressive, and it rarely improves without treatment. METHODS Microvascular decompressions (N = 226) were performed in 194 Hispanic patients (May 1992-May 2011). Outcomes were evaluated on a(More)

BACKGROUND Trigeminal neuralgia is one of the most common causes of facial pain with the highest incidence in individuals > 60 years old. Despite the proven efficacy and safety of microvascular decompression (MVD) for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia, some physicians are reluctant to perform the procedure in elderly patients because of potential(More)
INTRODUCTION Trigeminal neuralgia is produced in a significant number of cases by vascular compression at the level of cisternal segment of the nerve at the entry of the pons. It is common to find superior cerebellar artery (SCA) responsible for this compression. The retrosigmoid approach (RA), with asterional craniectomy, clearly exposes the cisternal(More)
INTRODUCTION. Pharmacological treatment is the first therapeutic step towards controlling pain in trigeminal neuralgia, but 25-50% of patients become medication resistant. There are currently several surgical alternatives for treating these patients. AIM. To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of stereotactic radiosurgery for the treatment of patients(More)
