[Electrophysiological mapping of the trigeminal nerve root during microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia].

Abstract

A method for intraoperative electrophysiological mapping of the intracranial root of the trigeminal nerve was studied in five patients with trigeminal neuralgia. During surgery, the trigeminal nerve root was stimulated centrally with a bipolar electrode, and antidromic responses were recorded peripherally from three branches of the trigeminal nerve in the… (More)
