To assess the value of high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of the trigeminal nerve and the superior petrosal vein (SPV) in visualizing their a...
This study describes a novel nerve block directed at the maxillary (V2) division of the fifth cranial nerve as treatment for medication-refractory trigeminal neuralgia (TN).
To compare the impacts of trigeminal neuralgia (TN) and painful posttraumatic trigeminal neuropathy (PPTTN) on psychologic function and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) using a comprehensive qua...
An epidermoid cyst is a rare tumor of the cerebellopontine angle region. It usually presents with ipsilateral compressive symptoms. The contralateral trigeminal neuralgia is an unusual presentation in...
Both Microvascular decompression (MVD) and Gamma knife radiosurgery (GKRS) are time tested treatment modalities for Trigeminal Neuralgia. There is little evidence in the literature studying these moda...
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.
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...
Background: Prognosis of medically treated trigeminal neuralgia patients is assumed to be poor, but the evidence is lacking. Thus, prospective real-life studies of medical management of tr...
The most common cause of trigeminal neuralgia is considered to be a neurovascular contact. However, this etiological factor only seem to be present in half of the patient group. Thus the e...
IncobotulinumtoxinA (Xeomin®) is a neurotoxin which inhibits the release of certain chemicals at the nerve terminals. It blocks cholinergic transmission at the neuromuscular junction by...
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)
Success in bringing an effort to the desired end; the degree or level of success attained in some specified area (esp. scholastic) or in general.
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.
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.
