Background. The aim of this study was to report further investigation of neurovascular compression as a cause of hemifacial spasm (HFS) and to provide useful surgical guidelines by describing the compression patterns. Material and methods. From January 2004 to February 2006, 236 consecutive patients with HFS underwent microvascular decompression (MVD) in a single centre. Based on the operation and medical records, the intraoperative findings and post-operative outcomes were obtained and… CONTINUE READING
