BACKGROUND: Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) caused solely by venous compression is uncommon. An appropriate vein management protocol for microvascular decompression (MVD) has not been established. We evaluated the management of veins for TN solely due to venous involvement. METHOD: We analyzed 31 patients with TN in whom only veins were manipulated during MVD. The culprit veins smaller in diameter than the vein of the cerebellopontine fissure (VCPF) were coagulated and divided in 20 patients (divided group), while transposition was performed for larger veins in the remaining 11 patients (non-divided group)...

BACKGROUND: Microvascular decompression (MVD) is the most effective and non-ablative treatment for trigeminal neuralgia (TN). However, it is not possible when neurovascular compression (NVC) is absent. Neurocombing is a possible treatment option for TN patients without NVC. AIM: To evaluate and describe the clinical outcome of neurocombing for the treatment of TN when NVC was absent. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the clinical data of the 37 patients of Type 1 TN without NVC who underwent neurocombing in our department between January 2013 and November 2014...

OBJECTIVE: Although many treatment modalities have been introduced for trigeminal neuralgia (TN), the long-term clinical results remain unsatisfactory. It has been particularly challenging to determine an appropriate treatment strategy for patients who have responded poorly to initial therapies. We analyzed the surgical outcomes in TN patients who failed prior treatments. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 37 patients with recurrent or persistent TN symptoms who underwent surgery at our hospital between January 2010 and December 2014...

Percutaneous radiofrequency thermocoagulation (RFT) of the Gasserian ganglion is an effective treatment for primary trigeminal neuralgia (pTN). Currently Hartel anterior approach is the most commonly used method to access the Gasserian ganglion. However, this approach is associated with high recurrence rate and technical difficulties in certain patients with foramen ovale (FO) anatomical variations. In the present study, we assessed the feasibility of accessing the Gasserian ganglion through the FO from a mandibular angle under computed tomography (CT) and neuronavigation guidance...

Fatigue is one of the most commonly reported sequelae after traumatic brain injury (TBI). This study evaluated the impact of a graduated physical activity programme on fatigue after TBI. Using a prospective randomised single-blind crossover design, 123 individuals with TBI, over the age of 18, were enrolled. Interventions included a home-based walking programme utilising a pedometer to track daily number of steps at increasing increments accompanied by tapered coaching calls over a 12-week period. Nutritional counselling with the same schedule of coaching calls served as the control condition...

BACKGROUND: The mechanisms by which surgery and radiation elicit pain relief in trigeminal neuralgia (TN) secondary to mass lesions vary widely. We aimed to evaluate the outcomes of radiation to the nerve rather than to the lesion in the treatment of secondary TN. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all patients who underwent radiation at the University of California, Los Angeles for TN secondary to tumors. The Barrow Neurological Institute (BNI) pain score was used to evaluate pain outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Radiosurgery seems to be a very appealing option for patients having a small petrous apex meningioma and presenting with trigeminal neuralgia, presumably because of the lower risk and cost involved. The aim of this study was to analyze the results of our surgical series of petrous apex meningioma presenting with trigeminal neuralgia, and to determine the efficacy of neurosurgical treatment with regard to pain control. The procedure-related complication and morbidity rates were also evaluated...

INTRODUCTION: Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is more common in elderly patients, and recent studies have demonstrated safety of microvascular decompression (MVD) in this patient population. To date, age has not been shown correlated with efficacy of MVD. We evaluated the role of age in predicting outcome after MVD in patients with typical TN. METHODS: We reviewed the records of patients who underwent MVD between January 1, 2004 and December 31, 2013. Patients with typical TN and demonstrated neurovascular compression on preoperative imaging were identified and contacted to obtain information about long-term pain control using the 5-point Barrow Neurological Institute (BNI) TN pain intensity score...
