Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Hematoma, Epidural, Spinal
A rare epidural hematoma in the spinal epidural space, usually due to a vascular malformation (CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM VASCULAR MALFORMATIONS) or TRAUMA. Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma is a neurologic emergency due to a rapidly evolving compressive MYELOPATHY.
Trigeminal Nerve Diseases
Diseases of the trigeminal nerve or its nuclei, which are located in the pons and medulla. The nerve is composed of three divisions: ophthalmic, maxillary, and mandibular, which provide sensory innervation to structures of the face, sinuses, and portions of the cranial vault. The mandibular nerve also innervates muscles of mastication. Clinical features include loss of facial and intra-oral sensation and weakness of jaw closure. Common conditions affecting the nerve include brain stem ischemia, INFRATENTORIAL NEOPLASMS, and TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA.
A syndrome characterized by recurrent episodes of excruciating pain lasting several seconds or longer in the sensory distribution of the trigeminal nerve. Pain may be initiated by stimulation of trigger points on the face, lips, or gums or by movement of facial muscles or chewing. Associated conditions include MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, vascular anomalies, ANEURYSMS, and neoplasms. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p187)
Nuclei of the trigeminal nerve situated in the brain stem. They include the nucleus of the spinal trigeminal tract (TRIGEMINAL NUCLEUS, SPINAL), the principal sensory nucleus, the mesencephalic nucleus, and the motor nucleus.
Neuralgic syndromes and other conditions which feature chronic or recurrent FACIAL PAIN as the primary manifestation of disease. Disorders of the trigeminal and facial nerves are frequently associated with these conditions.
OBJECTIVE: To investigate clinical characteristics of patients with malignant tumors of Meckel's cave with two illustrative cases. A comparative analysis of clinical features of malignant tumors of Me...
INTRODUCTION. The neurovascular conflict is now considered an unquestionable dogma in the pathophysiology of idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia (ITN). However, there are more and more papers that provide...
Percutaneous glycerol injection into Meckel's cavity is widely used to treat trigeminal neuralgia. Reports published to date summarized clinical experiences in small or intermediately sized groups of...
An abnormal vascular course of the superior cerebellar artery is often cited as the cause for trigeminal neuralgia. However, among patients with TN-like symptoms, 6% to 16% are variously reported to h...
A sinonasal infection is a frequent complication in patients with haematological malignancies, and may represent a challenge in terms of differential diagnosis between a bacterial or fungal infective...
This research study will look at the safety (e.g., the occurrence of side effects) and efficacy (how well the drug works in reducing trigeminal neuralgia attacks) of a drug called lamotrig...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the hyperbaric oxygen treatment reduces pain and improve the life quality in trigeminal neuralgia patients.
The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy and safety of lamotrigine in patients with trigeminal neuralgia (TGN).
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the efficacy of L-baclofen in patients with refractory trigeminal neuralgia. II. Evaluate the safety and tolerance of L-baclofen in these patients.
Will use visual analog scales to compare effectiveness of traditional hematoma block vs ultrasound guided hematoma block with regards to pain. This will be done for closed forearm fracture...
