Table 2 Intraoperative Variables and Incidence of Bradycardia

From: Perioperative and long-term operative outcomes after surgery for trigeminal neuralgia: microvascular decompression vs percutaneous balloon ablation

  BA MVD MVD with Rhizotomy Combined
Total Operating times (min) 23 ± 2 186 ± 6 * 197 ± 7 * 192 ± 5*
Bradycardia 64/84 (76%) 16/37 (43%) * 15/43 (35%)* 31/80 (39%)
Bradycardia Requiring Treatment 16/84 (19%) 0* 3/43 (7%) 33/80 (4%)*
  1. * P < 0.05 compared to BA group
  2. All data reported as mean ± SEM
  3. Combined = MVD with and without rhizotomy
  4. Bradycardia = 10% or greater decrease in Heart Rate
