Variant intraneural vein-trigeminal nerve relationships: an observation during microvascular decompression surgery for trigeminal neuralgia.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Trigeminal neuralgia is often caused by compression, demyelination, and injury of the trigeminal nerve root entry zone by an adjacent artery and/or vein. Previously described variations of the nerve-vessel relationship note external nerve compression. We offer a detailed classification of intraneural vessels that travel through the trigeminal… (More)
