Vasculaire compressie syndromen

[:nl]

Een conflict tussen bloedvaten en zenuwen kan neurologische symptomen veroorzaken. De meest frequente vasculaire compressie syndromen zijn de “trigeminusneuralgie”, de “glossofaryngeusneuralgie” en het “hemifaciaal spasme”.
Patiënten kunnen ernstige schietende pijn in het aangezicht (nervus trigeminus) of de keel en tong (glossopharyngeus ) ervaren. De aanvallen duren meestal seconden en kunnen zowel spontaan als uitgelokt door aanraking, kauwen , spreken , slikken of tandenpoetsen optreden.
Wanneer medische behandeling faalt of niet verdragen wordt, is chirurgie een optie voor deze patiënten. Bij een microvasculaire decompressie (Janetta chirurgie) wordt via een minimale schedelopening het bloedvat van de hersenzenuw verplaatst.
Alternatieve operatietechnieken die wij aanbieden zijn percutane thermocoagulatie en radiochirurgie (LINK).

Conflicts of intracranial arteries and nerves can cause neurological symptoms. The most common cranial nerve vascular compression syndromes are the trigeminal, glossopharyngeal and the spasm of the facial nerve. Patients may experience severe flashing pain in the facial area (trigeminal nerve) or throat and tongue (glossopharyngeal nerve). The attacks typically last seconds and they can occur both spontaneously or triggered by stimuli such as touch, chewing, speaking, swallowing or brushing teeth.

If medical treatment fails, surgery is an option for these patients. With microvascular decompression (Janetta surgery) the vessel is moved away from the cranial nerve. An alternative surgical technique for trigeminal neuralgia are percutaneous methods such as thermocoagulation and Alcohol rhizolysis or radiosurgery as well as electrical stimulation techniques.
