I’m new to TN and have been searching and reading as much as I can to be informed and I ran across a different approach or type of MVD surgery.
The surgeon created a sling out of goretex and pulled the vessel out of the way, attaching it away from the site instead of using the Teflon pads. Has anyone heard of that?
I have heard about it through research over the years, but it’s not mentioned often. I had the following link in my files…hope it helps.

Thank you Mimi
It states “No patient suffered recurrence in the follow-up period.” (Although I didn’t see how much that time period was.)
I wonder why this isn’t performed more often. Must be some reason.
I have teflon… Four years no pain here
so thankful for you KcDancerKc!
