The trigeminal ganglion is an atypical site for metastasis, especially for renal clear cell carcinoma (RCC). We report two clinical cases of 66- and 58-year-old men with trigeminal symptoms. Both pati...
Despite the etiology of trigeminal neuralgia has been verified by microvascular decompression as vascular compression of the trigeminal root, very few researches concerning its underlying pathogenesis...
In the standard model for the development of climbing and mossy fiber afferent pathways to the cerebellum, the ingrowing axons target the embryonic Purkinje cell somata (around embryonic ages (E13-E16...
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for approximately 8% of all brain metastatic disease; however, spread to the cranial nerves and their ganglia is uncommon. We report the first case of RCC metastati...
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells located in different parts of the body. The major role of stem cells is to restore of injured tissues. Since the discover of stem cells, they gained a big attenti...
Trigeminal neuralgia is one of the strongest pains known to humans. Some patients do not have enough effect with the available pharmaceutical treatments and are offered a type of surgery, ...
Trigeminal neuralgia is one of the strongest pains known to humans. Some patients do not have enough effect with the available pharmaceutical treatments and are offered surgery. There are ...
Despite the success of the triptan class of drugs, approximately 60% of patients who take medication at the moderate to severe pain stage of acute migraine, still have pain of mild or grea...
To investigate the brain activations related to TN, using fMRI, and to evaluate changes in these activations following the application of pulsed and thermal Radiofrequency lesioning to the...
The study is designed to compare the effectiveness and safety of high-voltage Pulsed radiofrequency and nerve block for the treatment of primary Trigeminal Neuralgia patients with ineffect...
The 5th and largest cranial nerve. The trigeminal nerve is a mixed motor and sensory nerve. The larger sensory part forms the ophthalmic, mandibular, and maxillary nerves which carry afferents sensitive to external or internal stimuli from the skin, muscles, and joints of the face and mouth and from the teeth. Most of these fibers originate from cells of the trigeminal ganglion and project to the trigeminal nucleus of the brain stem. The smaller motor part arises from the brain stem trigeminal motor nucleus and innervates the muscles of mastication.
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.
The semilunar-shaped ganglion containing the cells of origin of most of the sensory fibers of the trigeminal nerve. It is situated within the dural cleft on the cerebral surface of the petrous portion of the temporal bone and gives off the ophthalmic, maxillary, and part of the mandibular nerves.
The sensory ganglion of the facial (7th cranial) nerve. The geniculate ganglion cells send central processes to the brain stem and peripheral processes to the taste buds in the anterior tongue, the soft palate, and the skin of the external auditory meatus and the mastoid process.
The sensory ganglion of the COCHLEAR NERVE. The cells of the spiral ganglion send fibers peripherally to the cochlear hair cells and centrally to the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the BRAIN STEM.
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
