Abstract

Micro vascular decompression is performed as a common procedure in neurosurgical field for trigeminal neuralgia, hemi facial spasm, tinnitus etc. Regular craniotomy or craniectomy amounts to significant concerns in length of incision, size of craniotomy, postoperative stay in hospital, complications encountered and outcome. Keyhole craniotomy is an answer to all these concerns [1]. We present here our short series of key hole craniotomies done for micro vascular decompression for various indications and confirming the favorable outcome.
