PMID: 35495408.


•In this paper, we describe our mini-invasive approach for the deactivation of the auriculotemporal nerve in migraine surgery.•After a mean follow-up of 21 months (range, 3-67 months), patients complaining for temporal MH had 83% positive surgical outcome (50% complete MH elimination, 33% significant improvement).•Only rare minor complications are usually reported (eg, oedema, paresthesia hematoma/ecchymosis, and numbness).
