OBJECTIVE To retrospectively assess the surgical outcomes and complication rates following microvascular decompression (MVD) for trigeminal neuralgia, using a targeted, restricted retrosigmoid approach. METHODS During the period 1994-2009, a total of 119 patients underwent MVD for trigeminal neuralgia. A retrospective review was conducted in order to assess pain outcomes following surgery and at most recent follow-up. The intraoperative findings, Barrow Neurologic Institute (BNI) pain scores… CONTINUE READING
