Decision analysis for management of trigeminal neuralgia

Vandana Singh , M. R. Muthuseker


To formulate evidence-based decision analysis tree that briefly summarizes systematically, various methods for the management of trigeminal neuralgia (TN). TN is a relatively rare condition which causes severe, intermittent, and electric shock-like pains on the face. Little is known about the decision process in the treatment of TN, and management with antiepileptic drugs or surgical procedures carries risks of side effects, recurrence, and complications. Decision analysis in the healthcare context combines evidence and helps to determine the optimal strategy under given circumstances. When used to analyses decisions, this method helps establish the “best” treatment from the patient perspective. This information can help determine how an individual patients’ own idiosyncratic values affect treatment decision-making. TN has a huge psychological effect that can affect the quality and lifestyle of a person. A definitive diagnosis of TN is one of the greatest problems among clinician and patients.
