Abstract: Percutaneous balloon compression (PBC) of the trigeminal ganglion uses a differential injury of axons to interfere with the nerve's ability to transmit signals. In our experience, patients with lower divisional pain (V3) are often more difficult to control using PBC. We describe a modification to the PBC technique for patients with lower division (V3) pain, and present our experience to date.
