Abstract

Chronic cluster headache accounts for 10 to 15% of all patients with cluster headache and is often resistant to medical management. The authors followed 17 patients with intractable chronic cluster headache who underwent trigeminal nerve section. They found that trigeminal nerve section is an effective treatment with acceptable morbidity for a carefully selected group of patients.
