Trigeminocardiac Reflex Elicited in the Head and Neck Region - A Case Report Triggered by the Removal of Jackson-Pratt Drain
  • Evie Ho

Abstract

Trigeminocardiac reflex (TCR) is a complex neurophysiological reflex manifesting acute or chronic hemodynamic perturbations. Neurosurgical triggers have been described extensively as the common cause of TCR. Variability of TCR manifestation mainly depend on the stimulant location. We present the first reported TCR that is triggered by removal of Jackson-Pratt drain.
