Heim, Nils / Faron, Anton / Reich, Rudolf
Objective: Eagle syndrome (ES) is a pain syndrome caused by an elongated styloid apophysis or an ossified styloid ligament. It is characterized by a complex range of symptoms in head and neck region. The most effective treatment is surgical shortening of the styloid apophysis.

Further the authors performed a follow-up examination six years after surgical treatment via cervical approach. Conclsions: Surgical treatment via cervical approach appears to be an effective and safe option with low morbidity and mortality in treatment of symptomatic Eagle-syndrome of adults.

Keywords: Eagle syndrome, styloid process, styloid apophasis, styloid syndrome, parapharyngeal approach
