BACKGROUND Connective tissue diseases (CTD) may be associated with idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia (TN). The prevalence and diagnostic implications of this association are, however, not well established. OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to evaluate, in TN patients, if rheumatologic clinical and laboratory findings could contribute to the early(More)
OBJECTIVE Evaluation of the characteristics and dental treatments in a Brazilian series of idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia (ITN) patients. STUDY DESIGN Forty-eight subjects with ITN were interviewed and evaluated according to a systematized approach. RESULTS FINDINGS (a) location of the trigger zone, intraoral in 64.58%; (b) comorbidities, 18(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate a sample of patients with atypical facial pain (AFP) in comparison to patients with symptomatic facial pain (SFP). METHOD 41 patients with previous diagnostic of AFP were submitted to a standardized evaluation protocol, by a multidisciplinary pain team. RESULTS 21 (51.2%) were considered AFP and 20 (48.8%) (SFP) received the(More)
Idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia (ITN) is a well-known disease often treated with neurosurgical procedures, which may produce sensorial abnormalities, such as numbness, dysesthesia and taste complaints. We studied 12 patients that underwent this technique, in order to verify pain, gustative and olfactory thresholds abnormalities, with a follow-up of 120(More)
Movement disorders induced by central nervous system trauma are well recognized. However, over the last few years, attention has been drawn to the role of peripherally induced movement disorders. We describe three patients presenting respectively dystonia, tremor and choreoathetosis associated with tremor and dystonia of the body parts previously exposed to(More)
There are controversies about the use of local anesthetics during balloon compression for trigeminal neuralgia (TN) as a protective factor for cardiovascular events. The objective of this study was to investigate cardiovascular parameters (blood pressure and heart rate [HR]) of patients that underwent trigeminal balloon compression with local anesthetics(More)
This case report relates the association between a rare neuralgiform syndrome (SUNCT) and masticatory myofascial pain (TMD); two different diseases with different diagnosis criteria and treatments. SUNCT syndrome was treated with a balloon microcompression procedure of the trigeminal ganglion, and the myofascial pain with injections and physical therapy.(More)
