Trigeminal pain under vagus nerve stimulation

, : Trigeminal pain under vagus nerve stimulation. Pain 118(1-2): 271-273

Three epilepsy patients treated by cyclic continuous vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) experienced trigerninal pain during the periods of stimulation, which was reported as toothache in the left lowerjaw, ipsilateral to the side of stimulation. The symptom occurred with a latency of days to weeks following an increase in stimulation current intensity (SQ. Trigerninal pain was reversible with decrease in SCI, or subsided due to habituation. These findings show that clinically relevant effects of VNS on nociception may occur. Because of the late onset and variable form of this side effect, trigerninal pain may not be regarded as VNS-related which may result in unnecessary diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

The Gal4, Gal80, and Gal3 proteins of Saccharomyces cerevisiae constitute a galactose-responsive regulatory switch for GAL gene promoters. The low cellular levels of these proteins have hampered mechanistic studies and limit the utility of the GAL...
