Abstract

Trigeminal nerve root entry zone demyelination has been implicated as a cause of trigeminal neuralgia (TN) in multiple sclerosis (MS) and patients with nerve root vascular compression. We have examined the relationship between pathology and treatment outcome in patients with and without MS, treated for intractable TN by partial sensory rhizotomy (PSR).
