Endoscopic Microvascular Deompression

Research and Clinical Trials on Endoscopic Microvascular Decompression

Perhaps the best example of the positive results of research and clinical trials on endoscopic microvascular decompression is the development of this minimally invasive procedure.

Traditional microvascular decompression had a high risk of complications and even death. The treatment used a microscope to view and find the compressed nerve. Now through research and clinical trials to develop a better treatment, the minimally invasive endoscopic microvascular decompression procedure is safer and more effective.

Research indicates surgeons are more likely to identify the source of the nerve compression using the small endoscope instrument than the microscope. Also, the doctor’s ability to decompress the nerve is more successful with better visualization.

Patients are more likely to experience symptom relief with endoscopic microvascular decompression because the procedure has better visualization, illumination and less extraction.

As research continues to develop better treatments for facial pain, Florida Hospital is dedicated to providing this care for our patients.
