Treatment planning factors associated with long-term outcomes of Gamma Knife surgery in patients with trigeminal neuralgia.


Gamma Knife surgery (GKS) is an established treatment option for trigeminal neuralgia (TN). However, the long-term efficacy of GKS for patients with TN has not been well-studied.
