The patient came to the clinic 25-May-2005 complaining of left trigeminal neuralgia for 18 months. Neurologically the patient was free and sent for MRI of the brain to rule out other causative causes. Neurontine and tegretol did not gave release of her symptoms.

The patient was admitted to the hospital and under G.A. using Tohy needle 14 gauge, it was introduced through the left side of the face and aided with image-intensifier it was brought to foramen ovale and slowly introduced, until small amount of CSF came out. Then it was returned back 10 mm  and inflatable balloon 0.75 ml was introduced and metrizamide was filled, so that it was pointing to the middle fossa. The balloon was kept for 2 min, then deflated.

The procedure was without complications and the patient discharged the same day.
