Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The ideal treatment of trigeminal neuralgia is still an open question. A recent large series reporting the results from the three available percutaneous techniques has been reviewed. Fifty consecutive cases, treated from January 1984 to January 1985, are reported. Microcompression was performed as the first approach in all cases. The other techniques were adopted only in case of failure of microcompression.
