In this video Dr. Bardia Amirlak is demonstrating the Anatomical Regional Targeted (ART) nerve blocks for pre-operative screening and diagnosis, as well as treatment of chronic migraines and neuralgia of trigeminal nerves. The nerve blocks are often administered separately from the ART BOTOX injection.
The nerve blocks consist of a 15 cc mix of Lidocaine and Marcaine that is used to inject the Auriculotemporal (AT) nerve in the area immediately above the TMJ and at the hair line where the nerve and artery cross (approximately 10 cm from the midline). The Zygomatico-Temporal branch of the Trigeminal nerve (ZTBTN) is injected, as well as Supra-Orbital and Supra-Trochlear nerves.
