Sho Tsunoda, Tomohiro Inoue, Kazuaki Naemura, Atsuya Akabane,

Hemifacial spasm (HFS) is often caused by compression of the vertebral artery (VA) directly or indirectly as a result of other intervening vessels, so VA-associated HFS is difficult to treat. Recently, we have achieved good surgical outcomes using a far lateral approach and temporary clamping of V3 for VA-associated HFS. ... Read more >>
