In cranial nerve disorders, small arteries or veins press on your cranial nerves, which govern sensation and movement in the face. This friction causes painful facial spasms or twitching.
MVD is used to address the classic symptoms of cranial nerve disorders, including:
- Geniculate neuralgia
- Glossopharyngeal neuralgia
- Hemifacial spasms
- Trigenimal neuralgia
