Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of LLLT on current perception threshold in trigeminal neuralgia patients. Affected site and non-affected site was irradiated by GaAlAs diode laser. Current perception threshold was evaluated with $Neurometer^{(R)}$ CPT/C before and after LLLT. As an outcomes,CPT were obtained. We made a comparision of these values and the results were as follows. 1. There were no significant difference in CPT between affected site and non-affected site before and after LLLT irradiation. 2. There were no significant difference in CPT between affected site and non-affected site after LLLT irradiation. 3. But, CPT values of $A{\beta}$ fiber incresed slightly on both site after LLLT irradiation
