概要 Microvascular decompression (MVD) is a widely used, safe, and effective treatment for trigeminal neuralgia (TGN). However, the extent of application of this therapeutic method and its outcomes in Japan are currently unclear. To address these questions, the authors analyzed the use of MVD for the treatment of TGN during the 33-month period from July 2010 to March 2013, using data contained in the Diagnosis Procedure Combination database. The analysis revealed that MVD was used for the treatment of TGN in 1619 cases (608 men, 1011 women), with approximately 1.66 times more women treated than men. MVD for TGN was most frequently performed in individuals 60 to 79 years of age; of particular note was the remarkable increase in the number of women in this particular category. The overall number of procedures performed per 100,000 population/year in Japan was 0.46. The number of procedures was larger in prefectures with higher populations, with a tendency toward a higher number of MVD procedures performed in the area designated West than in the East. Discharge outcomes indicated that cure and improvement were achieved in 97.6% of cases, with a mortality rate of 0.2%, and no differences in discharge outcomes between men and women. The mean length of hospital stay in patients undergoing MVD for TGN was 14.8 days. This analysis revealed discernable trends in the use of MVD for the treatment of TGN in Japan.
