Similarly, craniofacial pain syndromes, such as trigeminal neuralgia, are successfully treated by moving the pulsating artery that compresses the mandibular nerve in the cerebellopontine angle with microvascular decompression or, in the absence of an offending artery, performing a blockade of the trigeminal ganglion with balloon compression or glycerol rhizolysis.
