The Occipital Artery Compressing The Occipital Nerve

Occipital Nerve Occipital Artery

This picture is from a case a few days ago and demonstrates very nicely the right greater occipital nerve being compressed by a pulsating occipital artery.  If you then look closely at the corresponding video, you can see the vessel pulsating in the video on the upper left and the pulsations corresponding to the beeping on the EKG monitor. I would hope that some of the doubters out there look at this and re-think the concept that there is nothing compressing these nerves.
