Comparison of percutaneous trigeminal ganglion compression and microvascular decompression for the management of trigeminal neuralgia.

The authors report 127 cases of trigeminal neuralgia treated by PTGC and comparing the results with those of 114 patients whom underwent MVD from 1985 to 2000. The… (More)
