Microvascular Decompression for Trigeminal Neuralgia: Zone Exploration and Decompression Techniques.


OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to introduce zone exploration of the trigeminal nerve and decompression techniques for different types of vasculars. METHODS The trigeminal nerve was sectioned into 5 zones. Zone 1, 2, 3, 4 was located at the rostral, caudal, ventral, and dorsal part of the nerve root entry zone (REZ) respectively, and zone 5 was located… (More)
