This study aimed to investigate the mechanism of nimodipine-mediated neural repair after facial nerve crush injury in rats. Adult Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into three groups: healthy controls, surgery alone, and surgery plus nimodipine. A facial nerve crush injury model was constructed. Immediately after surgery, the rats in the surgery plus(More)
BACKGROUND Few studies have examined atypical hemifacial spasm (AHFS), and the mechanism of AHFS remains unclear. In this study, we examined the etiology, prognosis, and treatment of AHFS. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the clinical data for 14 consecutive patients that underwent microvascular decompression (MVD) for AHFS between January 2014 and(More)
BACKGROUND Microvascular decompression (MVD) of the facial nerve monitored intraoperatively by abnormal muscle response (AMR) activity is a common treatment for hemifacial spasm. AMR frequently persists after MVD, however, for which electromyography (EMG)-guided nerve combing sometimes is recommended. Because no research regarding the success of EMG-guided(More)
BACKGROUND Microvascular decompression (MVD) of the trigeminal nerve is the most effective treatment for trigeminal neuralgia (TN). However, there are many patients responded poorly to initial MVD. For those patients, redo MVD is the common method. At present, there has been no research regarding the effective of nerve combing (NC) plus MVD for TN patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the characteristics of brainstem trigeminal evoked potentials (BTEP) waveform in patients with and without trigeminal neuralgia (TN), and to discuss the utility of BTEP in patients with primary TN treated by microvascular decompression (MVD). METHODS A retrospective review of 43 patients who underwent BTEP between January 2016 and(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze some clinical and epidemiologic aspects of Bell's palsy (BP) and to develop relevant correlations between existing data in literature and those obtained in this research. METHODS From January 2012 to December 2014, 372 consecutive patients diagnosed with BP were studied retrospectively. We reviewed the patients' data including gender,(More)
BACKGROUND Microvascular decompression (MVD) is the most useful treatment for hemifacial spasm (HFS). During MVD surgery, traditional abnormal muscle response (tAMR) is widely used to monitor success in decompressing the facial nerve. Dual AMR (dAMR) is a new monitoring method used during MVD for HFS. We compared the sensitivities and reliabilities of tAMR(More)
Hemifacial spasm(HFS) is a disorder characterized by intermittent, involuntary facial muscle contractions. Microvascular decompression(MVD) is the gold treatment for HFS. The aim of this research was to discuss whether patients undergoing MVD as their initial surgical intervention experience greater spasm control than patients experiencing an MVD performed(More)
BACKGROUND Bilateral trigeminal neuralgia is a relatively rare disease. Microvascular decompression (MVD) is a safe and effective treatment for unilateral trigeminal neuralgia; however, its utility in bilateral trigeminal neuralgia is unclear. Here, we report our experience with MVD in 13 cases of primary bilateral trigeminal neuralgia. METHODS We(More)
In hemifacial spasm, it is extremely rare to find a vessel passing through the facial nerve. In this study, we present our experience of the surgical treatment of four such patients. From January 2010 to Match 2015, we treated 2,576 hemifacial spasm patients with microvascular decompression in our department. Of these, four had an intraneural vessel.(More)
