BACKGROUND Microvascular compression of the trigeminal nerve root is a major cause of most trigeminal neuralgia (TN) in patients; however, no reliable animal model to further study the pathogenesis of TN currently exists. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to establish a novel and practical animal model for TN by chronic compression of the trigeminal (CCT) nerve(More)
Endomorphin-2 (EM2) demonstrates a potent antinociceptive effect in pain modulation. To investigate the potential interactions of EM2- and substance P (SP)-containing primary afferents and γ-amino butyric acid (GABA)-containing interneurons in lamina II in nociceptive transmission, connections between EM2- and SP-containing terminals and GABAergic neurons(More)
