Is hemifacial spasm accompanied by hemodynamic changes detectable by ultrasound?

Abstract

Arterial tortuosity of the posterior circulation compressing the facial nerve induces the ephaptic axono-axonal cross-talk that sparks hemifacial spasm. We sought if a noninvasive method such as color duplex of these arteries might detect hemodynamical changes in this condition.
