Recently admitted a right side muscle spasm (Level 4) a history of 4 years in Linyi a more than and 40 year old male patient, patients with facial beating frequently, almost no time to stop, but also lead to neck muscle spasm, very painful. The results showed that the facial nerve was compressed by the vertebrobasilar artery and anterior inferior cerebellar artery.
During the operation, it was found that the vertebrobasilar artery and anterior inferior cerebellar artery occupied the space of the cerebral cistern, which resulted in the difficulty of cerebrospinal fluid release. But ultimately overcome these difficulties, revealed to the auditory nerve, the anterior inferior cerebellar artery, after vertebrobasilar artery, posterior cranial nerves are base artery goes up in a bow, but no glossopharyngeal neuralgia, no drinking cough and hoarseness. The final completion of surgery.
Patients with facial convulsions disappeared completely, and there is no facial paralysis, hearing loss and tinnitus, no pharyngeal pain, no drinking cough and hoarseness were very happy years of pain finally solved.
Summary: This is a very rare case of very complex, the key is to repeat decompression, blood vessels to move away from the facial nerve. In order to solve the problem.
