|Abstract:||Patients who had uncontrolled pain with Carbamazepine therapy and those who suffered adversely from its side effects were selected for this safe, simple and repeatable surgery. Pain-free periods were achieved for at least 2 years. Functional difficulty was not experienced in the affected numb areas. When it recurred, pain was less intense and was better controlled with a reduced dosage of Carbamazepine. In four cases, after alvusion of the involved nerves, a suitable-sized titanium screw was inserted into the mental and infra-orbital foramina. Obturation of the foramen prevented nerve regeneration, which further prolonged the pain remission period. © 1999 Blackwell Science Ltd.|
