TRIGEMINAL NERVE INJURIES

Post-traumatic neuropathy of the trigeminal nerve: a retrospective analysis





In the context of scientific research on nerve injuries within the head and neck area, we want to investigate the complaint patterns, clinical and radiological findings and outcomes of nerve injuries in the head and neck area. In addition, we want to investigate how this translates into costs for patients and society, what the impact is on work absenteeism and medication use. Files from the MKA UZ Leuven service will be reviewed between January 2010 and October 2018. A collaboration will be organized with the Christelijke Mutualiteit (CM) to calculate costs, lost time at work, and medication use. All affected patients were informed by letter. You will find it below as well as the study protocol of this study.
