Microvascular Decompression for Trigeminal Neuralgia (combined venous & arterial)

Contributors: Fadi Sweiss

Microvascular decompression is the most effective surgical procedure for treating trigeminal neuralgia in patients with classic symptoms. Here we present a patient who had a “duo crush” from both a vein, as well as a loop of the superior cerebellar artery. The key maneuvers to create space between the compressive element and the nerve, in order to secure the teflon “cushion,” are highlighted.
