OBJECTIVE Our surgical results were reviewed to clarify the cause of glossopharyngeal neuralgia (GPN) and the effects of the microvascular decompression (MVD) procedure. METHODS Fourteen cases of idiopathic GPN were operated on through the transcondylar fossa (supracondylar transjugular tubercle) approach. Their clinical data and operative records were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS In every case, vascular compression on the glossopharyngeal nerve was found and MVD was performed without… CONTINUE READING
