BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Abnormal muscle response (AMR) to the electrical stimulation of a branch of facial nerve is a specific electrophysiological feature of primary hemifacial spasm (HFS). The aim of this study was to evaluate the value of AMR monitoring during microvascular decompression surgery (MVD), and the correlation between the AMR changes and the clinical outcomes. METHODS This study included 241 cases of MVDs. Intraoperative AMR monitoring was performed for each subject. The… CONTINUE READING
