247 Seiten, 1. Auflage, 2019
53 Abbildungen

  • Covers all the aspects of trigeminal neuralgia in detail
  • Two special sections cover management with non-conventional methods and recent review of literature with regard to outcome in relation to various interventions
  • Chapters are supplemented with figures depicting the surgical and percutaneous interventions along with illustrations for easy understanding of the readers
This book covers all aspects of trigeminal neuralgia (TGN) which is a common yet very painful condition of face and scalp. Chapters include historical perspective of the condition, clinical presentations, diagnosis, management strategy, drug therapy, different interventional techniques utilized, and non-invasive modalities offered.

The book has ample images to explain three main percutaneous procedures carried out for this condition such as radiofrequency thermocoagulation, glycerol rhizolysis and balloon microcompression in detail. It also covers open neurosurgical procedures including microvascular decompression and certain non-conventional and non-invasive methods.

This book provides assistance to pain physicians to have a comprehensive knowledge of trigeminal neuralgia. It is also relevant to neurosurgeons, neurologists, anesthesiologists, dental surgeons and resident doctors.
