Microvascular decompression for atypical hemifacial spasm: lessons learned from a retrospective study of 12 cases.

CONCLUSIONS The authors conclude that most cases of AHFS were caused by neurovascular compression on the posterior/rostral side of the facial nerve distal to the root entry zones. MVD is a safe treatment for AHFS, but the incidence of postoperative complications, such as facial paralysis and decrease in hearing, remains high.
