Diseases of the trigeminal nerve or its nuclei, which are located in the pons and medulla. The nerve is composed of three divisions: ophthalmic, maxillary, and mandibular, which provide sensory innervation to structures of the face, sinuses, and portions of the cranial vault. The mandibular nerve also innervates muscles of mastication. Clinical features include loss of facial and intra-oral sensation and weakness of jaw closure. Common conditions affecting the nerve include brain stem ischemia, INFRATENTORIAL NEOPLASMS, and TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA.
The 5th and largest cranial nerve. The trigeminal nerve is a mixed motor and sensory nerve. The larger sensory part forms the ophthalmic, mandibular, and maxillary nerves which carry afferents sensitive to external or internal stimuli from the skin, muscles, and joints of the face and mouth and from the teeth. Most of these fibers originate from cells of the TRIGEMINAL GANGLION and project to the TRIGEMINAL NUCLEUS of the brain stem. The smaller motor part arises from the brain stem trigeminal motor nucleus and innervates the muscles of mastication.
Conditions which produce injury or dysfunction of the second cranial or optic nerve, which is generally considered a component of the central nervous system. Damage to optic nerve fibers may occur at or near their origin in the retina, at the optic disk, or in the nerve, optic chiasm, optic tract, or lateral geniculate nuclei. Clinical manifestations may include decreased visual acuity and contrast sensitivity, impaired color vision, and an afferent pupillary defect.
Traumatic injuries to the TRIGEMINAL NERVE. It may result in extreme pain, abnormal sensation in the areas the nerve innervates on face, jaw, gums and tongue and can cause difficulties with speech and chewing. It is sometimes associated with various dental treatments.
A syndrome characterized by recurrent episodes of excruciating pain lasting several seconds or longer in the sensory distribution of the TRIGEMINAL NERVE. Pain may be initiated by stimulation of trigger points on the face, lips, or gums or by movement of facial muscles or chewing. Associated conditions include MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, vascular anomalies, ANEURYSMS, and neoplasms. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p187)
Diseases of the first cranial (olfactory) nerve, which usually feature anosmia or other alterations in the sense of smell and taste. Anosmia may be associated with NEOPLASMS; CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM INFECTIONS; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; inherited conditions; toxins; METABOLIC DISEASES; tobacco abuse; and other conditions. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp229-31)
Diseases of the tenth cranial nerve, including brain stem lesions involving its nuclei (solitary, ambiguus, and dorsal motor), nerve fascicles, and intracranial and extracranial course. Clinical manifestations may include dysphagia, vocal cord weakness, and alterations of parasympathetic tone in the thorax and abdomen.
Diseases of the twelfth cranial (hypoglossal) nerve or nuclei. The nuclei and fascicles of the nerve are located in the medulla, and the nerve exits the skull via the hypoglossal foramen and innervates the muscles of the tongue. Lower brain stem diseases, including ischemia and MOTOR NEURON DISEASES may affect the nuclei or nerve fascicles. The nerve may also be injured by diseases of the posterior fossa or skull base. Clinical manifestations include unilateral weakness of tongue musculature and lingual dysarthria, with deviation of the tongue towards the side of weakness upon attempted protrusion.
Benign and malignant neoplasms that arise from one or more of the twelve cranial nerves.
Pathological processes of the VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE, including the branches of COCHLEAR NERVE and VESTIBULAR NERVE. Common examples are VESTIBULAR NEURITIS, cochlear neuritis, and ACOUSTIC NEUROMA. Clinical signs are varying degree of HEARING LOSS; VERTIGO; and TINNITUS.
Diseases of the ninth cranial (glossopharyngeal) nerve or its nuclei in the medulla. The nerve may be injured by diseases affecting the lower brain stem, floor of the posterior fossa, jugular foramen, or the nerve's extracranial course. Clinical manifestations include loss of sensation from the pharynx, decreased salivation, and syncope. Glossopharyngeal neuralgia refers to a condition that features recurrent unilateral sharp pain in the tongue, angle of the jaw, external auditory meatus and throat that may be associated with SYNCOPE. Episodes may be triggered by cough, sneeze, swallowing, or pressure on the tragus of the ear. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1390)
Filarial infection of the eyes transmitted from person to person by bites of Onchocerca volvulus-infected black flies. The microfilariae of Onchocerca are thus deposited beneath the skin. They migrate through various tissues including the eye. Those persons infected have impaired vision and up to 20% are blind. The incidence of eye lesions has been reported to be as high as 30% in Central America and parts of Africa.
Disorders of one or more of the twelve cranial nerves. With the exception of the optic and olfactory nerves, this includes disorders of the brain stem nuclei from which the cranial nerves originate or terminate.
Diseases of the eleventh cranial (spinal accessory) nerve. This nerve originates from motor neurons in the lower medulla (accessory portion of nerve) and upper spinal cord (spinal portion of nerve). The two components of the nerve join and exit the skull via the jugular foramen, innervating the sternocleidomastoid and trapezius muscles, which become weak or paralyzed if the nerve is injured. The nerve is commonly involved in MOTOR NEURON DISEASE, and may be injured by trauma to the posterior triangle of the neck.
Diseases of the facial nerve or nuclei. Pontine disorders may affect the facial nuclei or nerve fascicle. The nerve may be involved intracranially, along its course through the petrous portion of the temporal bone, or along its extracranial course. Clinical manifestations include facial muscle weakness, loss of taste from the anterior tongue, hyperacusis, and decreased lacrimation.
A sensory branch of the trigeminal (5th cranial) nerve. The ophthalmic nerve carries general afferents from the superficial division of the face including the eyeball, conjunctiva, upper eyelid, upper nose, nasal mucosa, and scalp.
Diseases of the sixth cranial (abducens) nerve or its nucleus in the pons. The nerve may be injured along its course in the pons, intracranially as it travels along the base of the brain, in the cavernous sinus, or at the level of superior orbital fissure or orbit. Dysfunction of the nerve causes lateral rectus muscle weakness, resulting in horizontal diplopia that is maximal when the affected eye is abducted and ESOTROPIA. Common conditions associated with nerve injury include INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; ISCHEMIA; and INFRATENTORIAL NEOPLASMS.
The intermediate sensory division of the trigeminal (5th cranial) nerve. The maxillary nerve carries general afferents from the intermediate region of the face including the lower eyelid, nose and upper lip, the maxillary teeth, and parts of the dura.
Diseases of the fourth cranial (trochlear) nerve or its nucleus in the midbrain. The nerve crosses as it exits the midbrain dorsally and may be injured along its course through the intracranial space, cavernous sinus, superior orbital fissure, or orbit. Clinical manifestations include weakness of the superior oblique muscle which causes vertical DIPLOPIA that is maximal when the affected eye is adducted and directed inferiorly. Head tilt may be seen as a compensatory mechanism for diplopia and rotation of the visual axis. Common etiologies include CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA and INFRATENTORIAL NEOPLASMS.
Nuclei of the trigeminal nerve situated in the brain stem. They include the nucleus of the spinal trigeminal tract (TRIGEMINAL NUCLEUS, SPINAL), the principal sensory nucleus, the mesencephalic nucleus, and the motor nucleus.
Diseases of the oculomotor nerve or nucleus that result in weakness or paralysis of the superior rectus, inferior rectus, medial rectus, inferior oblique, or levator palpebrae muscles, or impaired parasympathetic innervation to the pupil. With a complete oculomotor palsy, the eyelid will be paralyzed, the eye will be in an abducted and inferior position, and the pupil will be markedly dilated. Commonly associated conditions include neoplasms, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, ischemia (especially in association with DIABETES MELLITUS), and aneurysmal compression. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p270)
Inflammation of the optic nerve. Commonly associated conditions include autoimmune disorders such as MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, infections, and granulomatous diseases. Clinical features include retro-orbital pain that is aggravated by eye movement, loss of color vision, and contrast sensitivity that may progress to severe visual loss, an afferent pupillary defect (Marcus-Gunn pupil), and in some instances optic disc hyperemia and swelling. Inflammation may occur in the portion of the nerve within the globe (neuropapillitis or anterior optic neuritis) or the portion behind the globe (retrobulbar neuritis or posterior optic neuritis).
The nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord, including the autonomic, cranial, and spinal nerves. Peripheral nerves contain non-neuronal cells and connective tissue as well as axons. The connective tissue layers include, from the outside to the inside, the epineurium, the perineurium, and the endoneurium.
Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss. The nerve and nerve sheath injuries may be caused by ISCHEMIA; INFLAMMATION; or a direct mechanical effect.
A nerve which originates in the lumbar and sacral spinal cord (L4 to S3) and supplies motor and sensory innervation to the lower extremity. The sciatic nerve, which is the main continuation of the sacral plexus, is the largest nerve in the body. It has two major branches, the TIBIAL NERVE and the PERONEAL NERVE.
Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.
Nucleus of the spinal tract of the trigeminal nerve. It is divided cytoarchitectonically into three parts: oralis, caudalis (TRIGEMINAL CAUDAL NUCLEUS), and interpolaris.
The 7th cranial nerve. The facial nerve has two parts, the larger motor root which may be called the facial nerve proper, and the smaller intermediate or sensory root. Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and SALIVARY GLANDS, and convey afferent information for TASTE from the anterior two-thirds of the TONGUE and for TOUCH from the EXTERNAL EAR.
The semilunar-shaped ganglion containing the cells of origin of most of the sensory fibers of the trigeminal nerve. It is situated within the dural cleft on the cerebral surface of the petrous portion of the temporal bone and gives off the ophthalmic, maxillary, and part of the mandibular nerves.
A macular lesion on the side of the FACE, involving the CONJUNCTIVA and EYELIDS, as well as the adjacent facial skin, SCLERA; OCULOMOTOR MUSCLES; and PERIOSTEUM. Histological features vary from those of a MONGOLIAN SPOT to those of a BLUE NEVUS.
Slender processes of NEURONS, including the AXONS and their glial envelopes (MYELIN SHEATH). Nerve fibers conduct nerve impulses to and from the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.
A branch of the trigeminal (5th cranial) nerve. The mandibular nerve carries motor fibers to the muscles of mastication and sensory fibers to the teeth and gingivae, the face in the region of the mandible, and parts of the dura.
A neoplasm that arises from SCHWANN CELLS of the cranial, peripheral, and autonomic nerves. Clinically, these tumors may present as a cranial neuropathy, abdominal or soft tissue mass, intracranial lesion, or with spinal cord compression. Histologically, these tumors are encapsulated, highly vascular, and composed of a homogenous pattern of biphasic fusiform-shaped cells that may have a palisaded appearance. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp964-5)
Twelve pairs of nerves that carry general afferent, visceral afferent, special afferent, somatic efferent, and autonomic efferent fibers.
The 2nd cranial nerve which conveys visual information from the RETINA to the brain. The nerve carries the axons of the RETINAL GANGLION CELLS which sort at the OPTIC CHIASM and continue via the OPTIC TRACTS to the brain. The largest projection is to the lateral geniculate nuclei; other targets include the SUPERIOR COLLICULI and the SUPRACHIASMATIC NUCLEI. Though known as the second cranial nerve, it is considered part of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.
Traumatic injuries to the LINGUAL NERVE. It may be a complication following dental treatments.
Muscles arising in the zygomatic arch that close the jaw. Their nerve supply is masseteric from the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

Junction between the cerebellum and the pons.
A general term indicating inflammation of a peripheral or cranial nerve. Clinical manifestation may include PAIN; PARESTHESIAS; PARESIS; or HYPESTHESIA.
HERPES ZOSTER but without eruption of vesicles. Patients exhibit the characteristic pain minus the skin rash, sometimes making diagnosis difficult.
A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.

Pure extradural approach for skull base lesions. (1/81)

Lesions in the parasellar and paracavernous regions can be removed by various skull base approaches involving basal osteotomies. A major complication of intradural skull base approaches is CSF leak and associated meningitis. We have managed 5 patients with skull base lesions with a pure extradural approach using wide basal osteotomies. The operative techniques are described.  (+info)

Cavernous sinus syndrome associated with nonsecretory myeloma. (2/81)

The case of a 53-year-old man who developed cavernous sinus syndrome (CSS) four years after being diagnosed as having nonsecretory myeloma is described. He was admitted with diplopia and dull pain over the right infraorbital and zygomatic region in June 1997. The cause of CSS was the intracranial involvement of myeloma, which was diagnosed by fiberscopic biopsy. The results of endocrinologic evaluation were almost normal. The response to radiotherapy and chemotherapy was mild. CSS caused by nonsecretory myeloma is rare and its prognosis is poor. More aggressive chemotherapy with stem cell support may be indicated.  (+info)

Thermally induced transient trigeminal sensory neuropathy: imaging findings. (3/81)

We report the clinical and imaging features of a patient with transient partial trigeminal sensory neuropathy thought to have been induced by thermal injury to the tongue. Abnormal thickening and enhancement of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve was revealed by MR imaging. The diagnostic considerations for mass-like enlargement of the trigeminal nerve should include transient/inflammatory processes, as well as more common and sinister conditions, such as tumor.  (+info)

Trigeminal schwannoma associated with pathological laughter and crying. (4/81)

A 46 year old man with trigeminal schwannoma displayed symptoms of ataxia with pathological laughter and crying. The tumour developed in the cerebellopontine angle, compressing the pontomesencephalic structures backward, extending in the posterior parasellar region and Meckel's cave. No recurrence of laughter and crying attacks were noted after total removal of the tumour. Theories of mechanism of pathological laughter and crying reported in the literature are reviewed.  (+info)

Solitary metastasis from occult follicular carcinoma of the thyroid mimicking trigeminal neurinoma--case report. (5/81)

A 50-year-old woman presented with an extremely uncommon case of solitary metastasis from follicular carcinoma of the thyroid, which presented clinically as trigeminal neurinoma. Neuroimaging detected a tumor in the right petrous apex, which was removed surgically. Histological examination showed metastatic follicular carcinoma of the thyroid. However, no primary tumor was detected by various investigations. The tumor recurred twice, and was treated surgically both times. The patient finally agreed to adjuvant therapy for the suspected primary. Radiotherapy was performed followed by complete thyroidectomy. Examination of the gross specimen found the tumor nodule. Clinically significant metastasis can arise from histologically benign and silent follicular thyroid neoplasms.  (+info)

Surgical treatment of trigeminal neurinomas. (6/81)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the best surgical approach for the removal of trigeminal neurinomas (TNs). METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 75' patients with TNs in Huashan Hospital was carried out. RESULTS: In the early group (1978-1984), a series of conventional intradural approaches were used; in the late group (1985-1995), an epidural approach via the skull-base craniotomy was used. Total tumor removal was achieved in 58% (20/35) of patients in the early group and 80% (32/40) in the late group (P < 0.025). Temporary and permanent cranial nerve morbidity were 62.7% and 37% in the early group and 28.1% and 10% in the late group (P < 0.001). CONCLUSION: The best microsurgical approach for the removal of trigeminal neurinomas except those confined to the posterior fossa is epidural approach or epidurotransduro-transtentorial approach via the skull-base craniotomy.  (+info)

Magnetic resonance angiography in facial and other pain: neurovascular mechanisms of trigeminal sensation. (7/81)

For much of the twentieth century migraine and cluster headache have been considered as vascular headaches whose pathophysiology was determined by changes in cranial vascular diameter. To examine nociceptive neural influences on the cranial circulation, the authors studied healthy volunteers' responses to injection of the pain-producing compound capsaicin in terms of the caliber of the internal carotid artery. The study was conducted using magnetic resonance angiographic techniques. Injection of capsaicin into the skin innervated by the ophthalmic (first) division of the trigeminal nerve elicited 40% +/- 27% (mean +/- SD) increase in vascular cross-sectional area in the right (ipsilateral) internal carotid artery when compared with the mean baseline ( P < 0.001). Injection of capsaicin into the skin of the chin to stimulate the mandibular (third) division of the trigeminal nerve and into the leg led to a similar pain perception and failed to produce any significant change in vessel caliber. The data suggest that there is a highly functionally organized, somatotopically congruent trigeminal innervation of the cranial vessels, with a potent vasodilator effect of the ophthalmic division on the large intracranial vessels. The data are consistent with the notion that pain drives changes in vessel caliber in migraine and cluster headache, not vice versa. These conditions therefore should be regarded as primary neurovascular headaches not as vascular headaches.  (+info)

Basilar artery aneurysm with autonomic features: an interesting pathophysiological problem. (8/81)

Unruptured cerebral aneurysms often present with neuro-ophthalmological symptoms but ocular autonomic involvement from an aneurysm of the posterior circulation has not previously been reported. A patient is described with a basilar artery aneurysm presenting with headache and unilateral autonomic symptoms. After angiographic coiling of the aneurysm there was a near complete resolution of these features. The relevant anatomy and proposed mechanism of autonomic involvement of what may be considered--from a pathophysiological perspective as a secondary trigeminal-autonomic cephalgia--is discussed  (+info)

Patients presenting with bilateral trigeminal hypoesthesia may go on to have trigeminal isolated sensory neuropathy, a benign, purely trigeminal neuropathy, or facial-onset sensory motor neuronopathy (FOSMN), a malignant life-threatening condition. No diagnostic criteria can yet differentiate the two conditions at their onset. Nor is it clear whether the two diseases are distinct entities or share common pathophysiological mechanisms. Seeking pathophysiological and diagnostic information to distinguish these two conditions at their onset, in this neurophysiological and morphometric study we neurophysiologically assessed function in myelinated and unmyelinated fibres and histologically examined supraorbital nerve biopsy specimens with optic and electron microscopy in 13 consecutive patients with recent onset trigeminal hypoesthesia and pain. The disease course distinctly differed in the 13 patients. During a mean 10 year follow-up whereas in eight patients the disease remained relatively stable, in the
Purpose: : To report the first case of a neurotrophic keratopathy associated with a trigeminal trophic syndrome. Methods: : A retrospective case study. Results: : A seven- year-old girl presented with a two-week history of redness and decreased vision in her left eye. Her prior medical history was significant for resection of posterior fossa ganglioglioma. On examination she was found to have a large epithelial defect in the left cornea. Her corneal sensation was decreased in the left eye due to CN V deficit related to the brain tumor resection. She was diagnosed with a neurotrophic keratopathy and treated with frequent lubrication and patching. The neurotrophic keratopathy improved gradually with treatment. Two months later, she developed non-healing deep ulcerations on the left side of her nose, and on the eyelid near the left medial canthus. The cultures of the lesions were negative. Due to progressive nature of the facial lesions and tissue destruction, she was referred to dermatology, and ...

Background: Recent data suggests that in chronic pain there are changes in gray matter consistent with decreased brain volume, indicating that the disease process may produce morphological changes in the brains of those affected. However, no study has evaluated cortical thickness in relation to specific functional changes in evoked pain. In this study we sought to investigate structural (gray matter thickness) and functional (blood oxygenation dependent level - BOLD) changes in cortical regions of precisely matched patients with chronic trigeminal neuropathic pain (TNP) affecting the right maxillary (V2) division of the trigeminal nerve. The model has a number of advantages including the evaluation of specific changes that can be mapped to known somatotopic anatomy. Methodology/Principal Findings: Cortical regions were chosen based on sensory (Somatosensory cortex (SI and SII), motor (MI) and posterior insula), or emotional (DLPFC, Frontal, Anterior Insula, Cingulate) processing of pain. Both ...
Trigeminal neuropathic pain is the most debilitating pain disorder but current treatments including opiates are not effective. A common symptom of trigeminal neuropathic pain is cold allodynia/hyperalgesia or cold hypersensitivity in orofacial area, a region where exposure to cooling temperatures are inevitable in daily life. Mechanisms underlying trigeminal neuropathic pain manifested with cold hypersensitivity are not fully understood. In this study, we investigated trigeminal neuropathic pain in male rats following infraorbital nerve chronic constrictive injury (ION-CCI). Assessed by the orofacial operant behavioral test, ION-CCI animals displayed orofacial cold hypersensitivity. The cold hypersensitivity was associated with the hyperexcitability of small-sized trigeminal ganglion (TG) neurons that innervated orofacial regions. Furthermore, ION-CCI resulted in a reduction of A-type voltage-gated K+ currents (IA currents) in these TG neurons. We further showed that these small-sized TG neurons ...
Non-Hodgkins lymphoma accounts for 3% of all newly diagnosed cancers. It can affect all age groups and males are affected more frequently than females (1.4:1). 60% originate in lymph nodes; the rest are in extra-nodal sites. 85% of cases are B-cell and the rest are T-cell NHL. The central nervous system is involved in 2-3% of cases of systemic lymphoma. Isolated trigeminal neuropathy is not a common presentation of secondary lymphoma of the central nervous system.. MRI provides direct multiplanar imaging. The signal intensity of the cellular deposits of lymphoma typically remains hypo- to iso-intense on all sequences. Contrast makes these lesions more prominent. Contrast CT will also show leptomeningeal deposits. In this case, a presumptive diagnosis of trigeminal schwannoma was made on the basis of the clinical symptoms and MRI findings (smooth masses, iso-intensity on T1- and high intensity on T2-weighted imaging with and without enhancement). Similar MRI signals are demonstrated in ...

An easily induced preclinical trigeminal neuropathic nerve injury model is described here for the study of chronic pain, the model acronym FRICT-ION (Foramen Rotundum Inflammatory Constriction Trigeminal InfraOrbital Nerve). In patients, neuropathic pain is thought to be related to vascular alignment or multiple sclerosis along this small trigeminal nerve branch (V2) innervating the maxillary teeth and middle third of the face. With no detectable outward physical signs, the FRICT-ION model is ideal for blinded studies. The acronym FRICT-ION applied relates to the persistence of the trigeminal neuropathic pain model likely due to sliding irritation with normal chewing in the mice. A step-by-step method to induce the mild chronic rodent neuropathic pain model is described here. The surgery is performed orally through a tiny surgical slit inside the cheek crease to align a chromic gut suture irritant along the nerve as it passes into the skull. The model allows testing of non-evoked subjective measures and

Pathological Laughter:. Crazy laughter was first described in 1903 as a prodromic symptom of an ischemic stroke and was later associated with brain lesions having a different location and etiology.. The patients usually present with episodes of laughter which would last 2 to 3 min and a simple act of smiling at the patients would provoke an attack of uncontrollable laughter.. Pathological laughter can be present in some neurological conditions including posterior fossa tumours. It is believed to be related to brain stem compression and disruption of its intrinsic pathways and connections to supra tentorial regions, as stated in various reports. Complete relief of the condition can be expected after surgical treatment and decompression of the brain stem.. The following are some of the important conditions leading to pathological laughter:. 1) Hypothalamic Hamartoma- Gelastic seizure is a rare form of epilepsy defined as automatic bouts of laughter without mirth. It is often associated with a ...

The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia. Once consent is obtained, the patient is positioned on the operating table so as to get clear access to the trigeminal nerve. The head is fixed in position so as to avoid any movements during surgery. The skin behind the ear is cleaned, and a small incision is made. Through this incision, an opening is made in the skull. This exposes the outer protective layer of the brain - this is called the dura. The dura is opening with the scalpel and the cerebellum (lower part of the brain) is gently moved in order to visualise the trigeminal nerve. The surgeon will then take a good look around to find the blood vessels that is compressing upon the trigeminal nerve. This is gently moved and a small pad is placed in between the nerve and the blood vessel to prevent further contact. If required, a small part of the trigeminal nerve will be cut.. Once this is done, the surgeon will take out the instruments and will suture close the dura. The opening within ...

Title: The Trigeminocardiac Reflex as Oxygen Conserving Reflex in Humans: Its Ischemic Tolerance Potential. VOLUME: 5 ISSUE: 4. Author(s):Bernhard Schaller and Klaus Prank. Affiliation:Dept. of Neurosurgery, University of Paris, Paris, France.. Keywords:Cardiac reflex, rostral ventrolateral reticular nucleus of the medulla, oxygen-conserving reflex, ischemia, ischemia tolerance, post conditioning. Abstract: The trigemino-cardiac reflex (TCR) is defined as a sudden onset of parasympathetic dysrhythmia, sympathetic hypotension, apnea or gastric hypermotility during the stimulation of any of the sensory branches of the trigeminal nerve. The sensory nerve endings of the trigeminal nerve transmit neuronal signals via the Gasserian ganglion to the sensory nucleus of the trigeminal nerve, forming the afferent pathway of the reflex arc. Through this physiological response, adjustments of the systemic and cerebral circulations are initiated to change cerebral blood flow in a manner that is not yet ...
The trigeminocardiac reflex (TCR) occurs upon excitation of the trigeminal nerve with a resulting bradycardia and hypotension. While several anaesthetics and analgesics have been reported to alter the incidence and strength of the TCR the mechanisms for this modulation are unclear. This study examines the mechanisms of action of ketamine, isoflurane and fentanyl on the synaptic TCR responses in both neurones in the spinal trigeminal interpolaris (Sp5I) nucleus and cardiac vagal neurones (CVNs) in the Nucleus Ambiguus (NA). Stimulation of trigeminal afferent fibres evoked an excitatory postsynaptic current (EPSC) in trigeminal neurones with a latency of 1.8 ± 0.1 ms, jitter of 625 μs, and peak amplitude of 239 ± 45 pA. Synaptic responses further downstream in the reflex pathway in the CVNs occurred with a latency of 12.1 ± 1.1 ms, jitter of 0.8-2 ms and amplitude of 57.8 ± 7.5 pA. The average conduction velocity to the Sp5I neurones was 0.94 ± 0.18 mm ms -1 indicating a mixture of A-δ and C fibres
A team at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) has just reported on the first-ever, double-blinded, sham-controlled study of trigeminal nerve stimulation (TNS) for treating ADHD.

Trigeminal nerve axon fascicles extending from the OpV of the TG reach the ventrotemporal pericorneal mesenchyme by E5. At this time, trigeminal axons are inhibited from entering the cornea by lens- and corneal-derived repellants Slit and Semaphorin3A. 69,72 Consequently, the main axonal nerve trunks remain deep in the limbal mesenchyme for several days. During this period, trigeminal nerves are not halted by the lens and corneal nerve guidance repellants, but instead they extend dorsally and ventrally around the cornea periphery into two approximately equal-sized bundles of nerve fibers to form a complete pericorneal nerve ring by E9 (Fig. 2A 62,68,69,72 ). To provide observations of cornea innervation at embryonic ages of E9 and older, nerves were visualized in dissected eyefronts by staining with the antineuronal-β-tubulin-specific antibody (Tuj1). Beginning at E9, nerve fibers extended in a tight bundle/fascicle from the nerve ring and advanced through the limbal mesenchyme, in a straight ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Generation of far field potentials from the trigeminal nerve in the cat. AU - Ajimi, Yasuhiko. AU - Ohira, Takayuki. AU - Kawase, Takeshi. AU - Takase, Moriichiro. PY - 1998/1. Y1 - 1998/1. N2 - This study provides evidence that far field potentials (FFPs) are generated from the trigeminal nerve in the cat. By stimulating the main mental nerve, three components (component 1, 0.59 ± 0.06 ms; component 2, 0.81 ± 0.06 ms; and component 3, 0.98 ± 0.07 ms) were identified from surface electrodes. These three components were thought to be positive and negative FFPs because each component had a stationary peak and was distributed on the head being divided into positive and negative fields. Results of a study of lesions and recording compound action potentials (CAPs) defined the neural origins of those potentials as follows: component 1, the mandibular nerve at the mandibular foramen; component 2, the mandibular nerve at the foramen ovale; and component 3, somewhere between the ...

Object. The purpose of the study was to define the therapeutic profile of outpatient gamma knife surgery (GKS) for vestibular schwannoma (VS) by using sequential tumor volumetry to quantify changes following treatment.. Methods. A total of 111 patients met the inclusion criteria. The median follow-up duration was 7 years (range 5-9.6 years). Thirty-seven patients (33%) had undergone surgery before GKS and 10 (9%) had neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2). The median VS volume was 1.6 cm3 (range 0.08-8.7 cm3).. The actuarial 6-year tumor control rate after a single GKS treatment was 95%. Tumor swelling was observed in 43 patients (38.7%). Recurrence was significantly associated with NF2 (p , 0.003) and the reduced dose (p , 0.03) delivered to these tumors. The incidence of facial nerve neuropathy was mainly determined by surgery prior to GKS (p , 0.0001). Facial nerve radiation toxicity was mild and transient. No permanent facial nerve toxicity was observed. Trigeminal neuropathy occurred in 13 ...
The current consensus is that TN is caused by demyelination of the trigeminal nerve. The trigeminal nerve carries information about what is touching the face back to the brain. This information is carried in little nerve fibers that are insulated from each other by myelin (like wires are insulated). If the insulation is lost (demyelination), then the nerves can short-circuit. Signals coming down one nerve fiber can spread to many nerve fibers and barrage the brain with signals (felt as the TN pain). The trigeminal nerve can lose myelin in certain diseases such as multiple sclerosis or more commonly by constant pressure from an abnormally located artery. The trigeminal nerve has three branches (hence tri-geminal) which join together as the nerves enter the skull. The first branch (ophthalmic or V1) controls sensation to the forehead. The second branch (maxillary or V2) covers sensation from below the eye to the corner of the lip. The third branch (mandibular or V3) covers sensation below the ...

Trigeminal neuralgia is a short circuit in the trigeminal nerve. The trigeminal nerve is a sensation nerve that carries sensation from the face into the brain, Robert Goodman, M.D., a chairman of the department of neurosurgery at St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital in New York, explained.. One hundred and forty thousand nerve fibers make up the trigeminal nerve. Most of them send normal messages to the brain, like when something touches your face, but many of those fibers only send pain messages. Each nerve is insulated, but when that insulation is damaged, the pain nerves can be activated. ...
BACKGROUND: The trigeminocardiac reflex (TCR) is defined as sudden onset of parasympathetic dysrhythmias including hemodynamic irregularities, apnea, and gastric hypermotility during stimulation of sensory branches of the trigeminal nerve. Since the first description of the TCR 1999, there is an ongoing discussion about a more flexible than the existing clinical definition. Aim of this work was to create a clinical surrogate definition through a systematic review of the literature. METHODS: In this meta-analysis study, literature about TCR occurrences was, according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis statement, systematically identified through various search engines including PubMed (Medline), Embase (Ovid SP), and ISI Web of Sciences databases from January 2005 to August 2015 ...
