Nonsurgical Management and Pharmacologic Therapy for Post-traumatic Peripheral Trigeminal Neuropathic Pain Disorders

The incidence of developing post-traumatic trigeminal neuropathy (PTTN) has been reported to range from 0.45% to 70% of injuries involving the inferior alveolar and lingual nerves. Based on ambispective clinical trials, no phenotypic presentation predicts outcome of microsurgery. In fact, microsurgery has only chance benefits. This 60-minute webinar will focus on the non-surgical management of PTTN. The pharmacologic therapies for acute and late-phase PTTN and their limitations, location-based treatments and alternative pain management strategies will be presented.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the different pharmacologic therapies, including evidence-based, for the proper dosages and regimens used to treat PTTN. 
  2. Identify the differences between early- and delayed-phase protocols for the treatment of PTTN. 
  3. Review alternative pain management strategies for the treatment of long-term PTTN.

Cancellation Policy: Registrants will receive a full refund up until the day before the event. No refund will be given for cancellation on the day of the event.
