Surgery

Microvascular Decompression

This patient with Trigeminal Neuralgia had surgery in 2012 by another surgeon at another institution. Initially, she felt well, but pain gradually returned over several years, caused by the Teflon pledgets left at the time of the initial surgery, which is very uncommon. This video shows finding the Teflon pledges stuck to the nerve and the process of gently dissecting them off.
