Peripheral nerve stimulation: black, white and shades of grey.

Br J Neurosurg 2019 Apr 7:1-5. Epub 2019 Apr 7.

a Department of Neurosurgery , Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences , Ranchi , India.

Unbearable chronic neuropathic pain, which can often not be resolved by conservative pain management techniques, calls for peripheral nerve stimulation. The technique, based on the Gate control hypothesis, uses low intensity current to block depolarization and conduction of neuronal membrane. Conditions such as intractable migraine, occipital and trigeminal neuralgia, burn injury pain, transformed migraine, among others, which cause intense pain can be treated by PNS, especially when the pain is localised and can be traced back to a specific nerve.

Meningitis for Secondary to Paradoxical Cerebrospinal Fluid Rhinorrhea as a Complication of Retrosigmoid Approach.

Asian J Neurosurg 2019 Jan-Mar;14(1):310-313

Department of Neurosurgery, Hospital Militar Central, Universidad Militar Nueva Granada, Bogota, Colombia.

Rhinorrhea secondary to a retrosigmoid approach is rare, but when it manifests, it is due to a paradoxical cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak, as a result of the communication between the mastoid cells, middle ear, and eustachian tube, which finally ends on the release of CSF through the nasopharynx. Abnormal communications increases the risk of infections, not only at the surgical site but also through an ascending path. Magnetic resonance cisternography (MRC) with intrathecal gadolinium injection through a lumbar puncture not only allows an adequate diagnosis but also helps to establish management plans. Read More

Pain Physician 2019 03;22(2):147-154

Department of Anesthesia & Intensive Care, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Background: Trigeminal neuralgia is the most painful condition of facial pain leading to impairment of routine activities. Although radiofrequency thermoablation (RFT) of the Gasserian ganglion is widely used for the treatment of idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia in patients having ineffective pain relief with medical therapy, the incidence of complications like hypoesthesia, neuroparalytic keratitis, and masticatory muscles weakness is high. Recent case reports have shown the effectiveness of RFT of the peripheral branches of the trigeminal nerve for relief of refractory chronic facial pain conditions including trigeminal neuralgia.

The expression of voltage-gated sodium channels in trigeminal nerve following chronic constriction injury in rats.

Int J Neurosci 2019 Mar 19:1-8. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

a Department of Neurosurgery , XinHua Hospital (The Cranial Nerve Disease Center of Shanghai), Shanghai JiaoTong University School of Medicine , Shanghai , China.

Objectives: Despite the etiology of trigeminal neuralgia has been verified by microvascular decompression as vascular compression of the trigeminal root, very few researches concerning its underlying pathogenesis has been reported in the literature. The present study focused on those voltage-gated sodium channels, which are the structural basis for generation of ectopic action potentials.

Methods: The trigeminal neuralgia modeling was obtained with infraorbital nerve chronic constriction injury (ION-CCI) in rats. Read More

Time course of pain response and toxicity after whole-nerve-encompassing LINAC-based stereotactic radiosurgery for trigeminal neuralgia-a prospective observational study.

Strahlenther Onkol 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Universitaetsstraße 27, 91054, Erlangen, Germany.

Purpose: To prospectively evaluate the time course of pain response and toxicity after linear accelerator-based whole-nerve-encompassing radiosurgery (LINAC-SRS) using a uniform treatment schedule for dosing and target volume definition in patients with refractory trigeminal neuralgia.

Methods: From December 2012 to December 2016, 21 patients were treated using a standardized protocol. Patients received LINAC-SRS with 70 Gy to the cisternal portion while aiming for the 90% isodose to fully envelope the nerve in one cross-sectional plane. Read More

Retrosigmoid approach for glycerin rhizotomy in the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia without overt arterial compression: updated case series.

J Neurosurg 2019 Mar 8:1-7. Epub 2019 Mar 8.

1Department of Neurosurgery, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland; and.

OBJECTIVETrigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a neuropathic pain disorder characterized by severe, lancinating facial pain that is commonly treated with neuropathic medication, percutaneous rhizotomy, and/or microvascular decompression (MVD). Patients who are not found to have distinct arterial compression during MVD present a management challenge. In 2013, the authors reported on a small case series of such patients in whom glycerin was injected intraoperatively into the cisternal segment of the trigeminal nerve. Read More
