Trigeminal neuralgia is a very hard condition to endure, characterized by violent painful attacks that can be triggered in succession and last for a long time, making it very difficult to perform even small tasks during a day. Some define it as a “suicidal illness” to describe the symptoms and the experience of those affected. The good news is that there is treatment to relieve this condition: a non-invasive neurosurgical technique that lets you say goodbye to this annoying disorder forever.
Trigeminal neuralgia is caused by a neurovascular conflict produced by the contact between an artery and this nerve known as the trigeminal nerve. Pulses from the large blood vessel cause anomalous electrical nerve discharges, producing a feeling of pain that can radiate to the eyes, nose, lips, outer jaw and lower jaw, and to the internal mucous membranes, leading to a very debilitating condition for those who suffer from it.
The treatment, known as “Selective Trigeminal Neurology with Fluoroscopy”, requires only one night in the clinic to eliminate the trigeminal neuralgia pain, with utmost safety, at any age. The operation is performed according to the so-called “Härtel” technique with particular radiological imaging; and consists of the use of a special needle, able to reach the three branches of the trigeminal nerve in the ganglion complex with absolute safety and precision, without any risk, to perform a selective neurological procedure aimed at releasing the nerve from those compressions at the root of the neuralgia pains. A procedure which is safe, accurate, always effective, with almost no side effects. Above all, it is capable of ultimately getting rid of the nightmare of this terrible debilitating condition.
