Cranial Nerve Diseases (Cranial Nerve Disorders)

Disorders of one or more of the twelve cranial nerves. With the exception of the optic and olfactory nerves, this includes disorders of the brain stem nuclei from which the cranial nerves originate or terminate.

Therapies and Procedures

3. Catheters
4. Endoscopes
5. Endarterectomy (Thromboendarterectomy)
03/20/2010 - "There was one event of cranial nerve palsy in the stenting group compared with 45 in the endarterectomy group. "
10/01/2009 - "There were more cranial nerve palsies (22 vs 0) in the endarterectomy group than in the endovascular group. "
11/01/2012 - "In large randomized studies comparing endarterectomy and stenting, endovascular therapy was associated with a higher risk of periprocedural stroke, yet in some studies, with a lower risk of myocardial infarction and of cranial neuropathy. "
01/01/2012 - "Pooled evidence from randomized controlled trials of endarterectomy versus stenting shows a higher rate of stroke or death in the stenting groups-but this finding is mitigated to an extent by the lower incidence of myocardial infarction and cranial nerve palsy in patients undergoing stenting. "
01/01/2012 - "Endovascular treatment was associated with lower risks of myocardial infarction (OR 0.44, 95% CI 0.23 to 0.87, P = 0.02; I(2) = 0%), cranial nerve palsy (OR 0.08, 95% CI 0.05 to 0.14, P < 0.00001; I(2) = 0%) and access site haematomas (OR 0.37, 95% CI 0.18 to 0.77, P = 0.008; I(2) = 27%).The combination of death or any stroke up to 30 days after treatment or ipsilateral stroke during follow-up (the primary combined safety and efficacy outcome) favoured endarterectomy (OR 1.39, 95% CI 1.10 to 1.75, P = 0.005; I(2) = 0%), but the rate of ipsilateral stroke after the peri-procedural period did not differ between treatments (OR 0.93, 95% CI 0.60 to 1.45, P = 0.76; I(2) = 0%).Restenosis during follow-up was more common in patients receiving endovascular treatment than in patients assigned surgery (OR 2.41, 95% CI 1.28 to 4.53, P = 0.007; I(2) = 55%).
