• A literature search was carried out in PubMed with the following search terms: neurovascular compression syndrome, cranial neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, glossopharyngeal neuralgia, vestibular nerve compression, vestibular paroxysmia, intermedius neuralgia and microvascular decompression. (aerzteblatt.de)
  • Trigeminal neuralgia is the most common neurovascular compression syndrome in the posterior fossa, with an incidence of 4 5 cases per 100 000 persons per year (among persons over age 60: up to 20 per 100 000 persons per year ) ( 3 , 4 ). (aerzteblatt.de)
  • The supraorbital nerve is a branch of the frontal nerve arising from the ophthalmic division of the trigeminal nerve (cranial nerve V). The foramen sits on the inmost, lower margin of a grove splitting the supraorbital ridge into a central and two distal sections. (wikipedia.org)
  • Annexin A6 controls neuronal membrane dynamics throughout chick cranial sensory gangliogenesis Cranial sensory ganglia are components of the peripheral nervous system that possess a significant somatosensory role and include neurons within the trigeminal and epibranchial nerve bundles. (tripdatabase.com)
  • Annexin A6 is expressed in chick trigeminal and epibranchial placode cell-derived neuroblasts and neurons, but its function in cranial ganglia formation has not been elucidated. (tripdatabase.com)
  • Glossopharyngeal neuralgia is rarer, with pain localised to the posterior tongue, throat and ear canal. (gponline.com)
  • In the case of epidural hematoma in the posterior cranial fossa , the herniation is tonsillar and causes the Cushing's triad: hypertension, bradycardia, and irregular respiration. (diki.pl)
  • As the posterior fossa is a relatively small and nonexpandable space, hemorrhage or edema can lead to rapid compression and compromise of vital medullary functions, obstructive hydrocephalus, or herniation of the medullary tonsils. (medscape.com)
  • The purpose of this study was to determine the localization of the asterion according to the anatomical landmarks of posterior cranial fossa and its relation with sinuses for posterolateral surgical approaches in newborns. (ksbu.edu.tr)
  • This study proposes a variation of the transorbital endoscopic approach (TOEA) that uses the lateral orbit as the primary surgical corridor, in a minimally invasive fashion, for the posterior fossa (PF) access. (thejns.org)
  • The p75 neurotrophin receptor regulates cranial irradiation-induced hippocampus-dependent cognitive dysfunction Cognitive deficits, characterized by progressive problems with hippocampus-dependent learning, memory and spatial processing, are the most serious complication of cranial irradiation.

  • Third, Fourth, and Sixth Cranial Nerve Palsies in Pituitary Apoplexy Pituitary apoplexy (PA) often presents with acute headache and neuro-ophthalmic manifestations, including ocular motility dysfunction (OMD) from cranial nerve palsies (CNPs). (tripdatabase.com)
