Video Transcript

First slide. First of all, I would like to thank the Scientific Committee as the chairman towards the parameters to present the result about radiosurgery with a very classic method using a frame and concerning drug-resistant essential trigeminal neuralgia. The primary objective of the study was to confirm the efficacy of the technique in comparison to other techniques. We have investigated if high dose applied to the plexus triangularis induce a decrease or cessation of pain attacks. The secondary objective was to confirm and to determine the safety and the predictive factors. Looking to the incidence of new functional disturbance...
