Trigeminal neuralgia - microvascular decompression after Janetta
174 rating(s) (4.65 ø)

Intra-operational microscopic view of  the trigeminal nerve inside the cerebellopontine angle. An arterial blood-vessel in direct contact with the nerve is visible. In microvascular decompression surgery, the artery and the trigeminal nerve are dissected free of each other and a cushion, for example made of teflon or muscle, is placed between the two. Trigeminal neuralgia resistant to conservative management can often be cured this way.
