The Role of Preop MRI in Assessing Neurovascular Compression Prior to Microvascular Decompression in Trigeminal Neuralgia

Cerebrovascular neurosurgeon Risheng Xu recaps his presentation from the 2022 College of Neurological Surgeons annual meeting. His research on the sensitivity and specificity of MRI studies in predicting neurovascular compression offers recommendations for the standard workup for patients with trigeminal neuralgia who may be candidates for microvascular decompression.
