TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA SURGERY IN INDIA
Trigeminal neuralgia is a symptom complex with severe facial pain. In classic trigeminal neuralgia, patients experience severe episodic lancinating (piercing) pain in the face. Although the attacks of pain can come in consecutive chains, each attack of pain may last only a few seconds. Touching, chewing, facial motion, and cold breezes are the usual triggers of facial pain attacks. Between attacks of pain, patients usually do not have any symptoms. In order to minimize the attacks of pain, patients often refrain from talking, facial expressive motion, or even eating. When patients have severe attacks, they can become easily dehydrated from avoiding beverages and food.
Although some patients with multiple sclerosis can develop trigeminal neuralgia due to demyelinating disease in the trigeminal nerve root, most patients with trigeminal neuralgia are classified as idiopathic due to the lack of any obvious cause. It was observed that most cases of idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia were caused by blood vessel compression at the trigeminal nerve root inside the head (neurovascular compression). In atypical form of trigeminal neuralgia, patients experience pain constantly or for an unusually prolonged period. This can be an extremely debilitating condition that reduces one’s quality of life. Fortunately, the cases of trigeminal neuralgia that are caused by neurovascular compression may be effectively treated by surgical means.
