ABSTRACT
Until the latest date, in many operative procedures for the trigeminal neuralgia, the partial trigeminal rhizotomy using suboccipital approach was considered hazard, great risk, high mortality, clinical results also seen not so satisfactory and more difficult technically than the temporal sensory root section. Nowaday, the suboccipital approach tried again by many other neurosurgeons and began comparison of the subtemporal and suboccipital rhizotomy. The suboccipital rhizotomy became recognized ease, safety of the method, excellent chance of lasting relief and least impairment. We got excellent clinical result and reported 2 cases of trigeminal neuralgia using Exum Walker and Kempe's method.
