Decompression microvascular treatment is a surgical procedure for relieving abnormal compression of the facial spasms and cranial nerve. MVD for trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm and glossopharyngeal neuralgia is very effective. The decompression microvascular treatment is ideal for those who are suffering from trigeminal neuralgia which is not properly controlled with medication and the patient doesn't want numbness in any part of the face as seen in the case of many alternative treatments. The nerve pain medication offers initial relief but with regular usage, it can become ineffective and cause side effects. Then your neurologist would recommend a trigeminal nerve surgery which involves opening of the cranium or the skull and then insert cotton or sponge in between the nerve so that the artery or nerve causing pain signals can get corrected. The decompression microvascular is a surgical process which helps in relieving the symptoms like pain and muscle twitching which are caused by a compressed nerve by a vein or artery. The neurologist would open the skull and insert a sponge in between the compressing nerve and vessel. This sponge helps in isolating the nerve from pulsating effect and unwanted pressure of the blood vessel. Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition where the 5th cranial nerve gets severely inflamed leading to severe pain which affects a single side of the face and normally affects the cheek, jaw, forehead and teeth. It can be successfully treated by removing the compression which is causing the painful symptoms.
