Trigeminal Neuralgia- Non Surgical Radiofrequency Ablation – The Permanent Solution
One can expect the way a person gets annoyed by having an electric shock like pain in one side of the face. This excruciating pain is called "TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA".
Patients suffering would be in intolerable pain on an one side of the face unable to chew, unable to brush and unable to even talk also, which stimulates the pain and will have excruciating pain for few minutes. In severe forms even the fine below of the air from the fan would not be tolerated.
The pathology lies in the brain where the Trigeminal nerve which is responsible for the sensations of the face is being compressed by a blood vessel in turn gives extremely disabling electric shock like pain over the affected side said, Dr. SUDHEER DARA, MD.FIAPM, Founder & Director , Epione - Centre for Pain Relief and Beyond , Hyderabad .
This condition is initially managed by oral medication like TEGRITAL and other ANTINEUROPATHIC DRUGS which are supposed to reduce the electrical stimulus generated from the nerve and reduce the pain. As the days go by the dosing of the medication automatically gets increased and the commencement of few other education also starts.
These oral pills cannot cure the condition but can reduce the symptoms for few days to months. Few patients can develop intolerable side effects also where the treatment becomes more stubborn. The patients with this condition are likely to develop deep depression.
The surgical option which is a major Craniotomy involves in opening the brain and detaching the nerve and the blood vessel.
(MVD - M1CROVASC ULAR DECOMPRESSION) has been practised since long and can lead to few complications like morbidity and mortality in some cases.
The advanced pain management innovation in treating this Catastrophic condition is RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION OF THE TRIGEMINAL GANGLION.
A simple injection procedure of half an hour can permanently cure the disease and make the patient pain free forever. This procedure is performed by pain specialists who are experienced in the field. Very few centres available throughout the country. This treatment need specialised equipment which will guide the specialist to reach the nerve and helps in doing the radiofrequency ablation. The patient is suppose to stay in the hospital only for 4 hours and discharged after that. Few medication and precautions will be given to the patient and should be kept in follow up. This procedure is involved in very negligible difficulties and complications but has got the success rate almost on par with the major surgical procedure MVD.
EPIONE-Centre for pain relief and beyond has got an experience of over 500 cases successfully treated by this day care treatment-Radiofrequency ablation in the last 5 years.
