Endoscopic section of the sensory trigeminal root glossopharyngeal nerve and cranial part of the vagus for intractable facial pain caused by upper jaw carcinoma



Endoscopic section of the sensory trigeminal root glossopharyngeal nerve and cranial part of the vagus for intractable facial pain caused by upper jaw carcinoma



Surgical Neurology 16(2): 92-95



In a patient with intractable facial pain caused by a deep-seated carcinoma of the upper jaw, relief was obtained following endoscopic section of the sensory trigeminal root, the glossopharyngeal nerve and the cranial part of the vagus. Previous stereotactic thalamotomy had failed. The endoscopic method is briefly described and discussed.
