Purpose: to evaluate the effectiveness of low-intensity helium-neon laser radiation in patients with trigeminal neuralgia. Material and Methods. With the help of low-intensity helium-neon laser radiation, 76 patients with trigeminal neuralgia were treated. For this purpose, helium-neon laser devices AFL-1 and AFDL-1 with a wavelength of laser radiation of 0.63 microns were used, the power flux was 20-25 mW. Results. It is shown that as a result of treatment with this type of radiation in most cases, both nociceptive and neuropathic components of the pain syndrome are stopped. Conclusion. For the management of pain syndrome in trigeminal neuralgia, it is advisable to use low-intensity laser radiation in complex treatment.

Anatomic and topographic features of middle cranial fossa which should be taken into account during paracentetic access to sensory root of trigeminus are examined in the article. It is substantiated that treatment of trigeminus neuralgia needs bounded influence on sensory root of trigeminus. The authors based the idea of paracentetic access to sensory root of trigeminus through for. ovale. Such possible complexities and specific features as: probable confluence of for. ovale with other holes, calcification of ligamentous apparatus, and presence of holes due to this process should be considered during surgery.
