Several surgical approaches used to relieve the pain due to TN include neurectomy of the trigeminal nerve branches outside the skull, percutaneous radiofrequency thermal rhizotomy, percutaneous ablation that creates the trigeminal nerve or trigeminal ganglion lesions with heat, percutaneous retrogasserian glycerol rhizotomy, injection of glycerol into the trigeminal cistern, physical compression, trigeminal ganglion balloon microcompression, alcohol injections, botulinum toxin injection, cryotherapy, and gammaknife radiosurgery (GKRS).
While antiepileptic drugs such as carbamazepine, gabapentin, baclofen, or amitriptyline can be used for medical treatment, radiofrequency gangliolysis, retrogasserian glycerol injections, microvascular decompression surgery, and the gamma knife system are other treatment modalities.
When medicinal treatment is no more effective various surgical modalities can be tried which include peripheral procedures like glycerol and alcohol injections, cryosurgery, peripheral neurectomy and central procedures viz microvascular decompression, radio frequency thermocoagulation, glycerol gangliolysis, balloon compression, percutaneous retrogasserian glycerol rhizotomy and gamma knife radiosurgery10.
