Gamma Knife for Trigeminal Neuralgia
The cause of trigeminal neuralgia is not always certain. Approximately five percent of patients have a tumor pressing on the trigeminal nerve where it leaves the brain, while other patients have a blood vessel that presses on the trigeminal nerve, close to the brain. In some patients the cause cannot be determined. Approximately five percent of patients with trigeminal neuralgia have multiple sclerosis.
