B alloon compression rhizotomy of the gasserian ganglion is a simple and effective technique for treating trigeminal neuralgia. The procedure currently is hindered by a lack of commercially available equipment needed for it. This is unfortunate, as the technique is a valuable tool that offers immediate pain relief to patients who may not be candidates for microvascular decompression. In the past, a prepackaged FDA-labeled kit, the Mullan percutaneous trigeminal ganglion microcompression set from Cook Medical, would have been used. Unfortunately, this set has not

-lumen catheter with balloon for temporary occlusion of the carotid artery, a Fogarty-type catheter to prevent surgically induced thrombus in a giant aneurysm from entering the parent artery, a balloon to dilate a web-stenosed carotid artery, and a compressive balloon which percutaneously compresses the trigeminal ganglion to relieve trigeminal neuralgia. Since our numbers in each category are limited, we will describe only a few significant cases in order to portray something of the scope of these new neurosurgical tools. Further experience will be necessary to delineate their

intercarotica caudalis. 10 In such animals, this artery provides dural and hypophyseal branches. Potential Embryology Lie, as quoted by Midkiff et al., 8 described this variation in a child and postulated that the artery resulted from the fusion of 2 primitive trigeminal arteries because of its location near the trigeminal ganglion. Midkiff et al. 8 provided other explanations for the development of these interconnecting vessels that included anastomoses of the primitive maxillary, inferior hypophyseal, or capsular arteries. Padget 11 noted that the primitive
