Description

Peter J. Jannetta, the neurosurgeon/neuroscientist who has contributed so much to the evaluation and treatment of trigeminal neuralgia and other cranial nerve disorders brings together the most distinguished contributors in Trigeminal Neuralgia. This seminal work collates and categorizes in one succinct volume what we understand about the various forms of face pain syndromes. By providing information on former beliefs, as well as current understanding, this book provides multiple options regarding diagnosis, medical treatment and operative intervention which will help decision making, develop knowledge and improve care of patients. Irigeminal Neuralgia begins with an Introduction explaining where we were and what role those ideas have played in current thinking, all with the goal of giving the reader a basis for future thought. With each subsequent chapter - written by basic scientists and astute clinicians working in the area of facial pain - enigmas are clarified, solutions of apparently untreatable problems are presented, and a better understanding of how diagnoses and pathophysiology are evolving are presented. This is a must read for all who would learn about neurogenic facial pain.show more

Review quote

..".this is a superb book edited by one of the masters in this area with contributions by many experts but with the master's hand evident throughout. It should be of wide interest to clinicians, and clinical and basic researchers in facial pain but also to those interested in neuropathic pain generally, and to some patients and their relatives. It is practical but also stimulates thought regarding the singularity of this neuropathic condition with the particular efficacy of the specific sodium channel blocker carbamazepine and marked initial efficacy of a variety of surgical options. I highly recommend this small reasonably priced volume." -- C. Peter N. Watson, MD FRCPC University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Pain Research & Management ..".chapters are well written and referenced, and very detailed (including step-by-step descriptions of how each of the procedures is performed)...this book excels in the arena of interventional treatment." -- Rebecca Burch, MD, Neurology ..".this is a superb book edited by one of the masters in this area with contributions by many experts but with the master's hand evident throughout.
