Neurovascular Compression

Neurovascular Compression is a medical condition primarily characterized by an abnormal physical contact between blood vessels and nerves in the cranial cavity. This direct pressure often leads to one or more neurological disorders, with symptoms varying widely based on the specific nerve structures affected.

The clinical phenomenon of neurovascular compression is commonly linked to conditions such as trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, and disabling vertigo. Each of these disorders presents unique symptomatology triggered by aberrant vascular impingement on corresponding cranial nerves. The offending vessels can range from major arteries to small veins.

Diagnosis involves detailed patient history, clinical examination, and advanced imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which can visualize the precise anatomical relationship between cranial nerves and surrounding vasculature. Treatment strategies typically involve medication for symptomatic relief and surgical procedures like microvascular decompression for definitive management.
