Numbness Incidence after Radiosurgery for Trigeminal Neuralgia According to Changes in Treatment Protocol at UCLA


Alessandra Gorgulho, MD, from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) discusses numbness incidence after radiosurgery for trigeminal neuralgia patients according to changes in treatment protocol at UCLA. The purpose of the study from which these findings were taken was to analyze the impact of the isocenter positioning on the incidence of numbness with the rationale that increased radiation dose to the brainstem may lead to a higher rate of facial numbness. She then goes into a detailed overview of this study, its demographics and results.
