The techniques of two experimental surgical operations on the trigeminal nerve are described, namely, excision of the trigeminal ganglion (ganglionectomy) and division of the trigeminal root (rhizotomy), in the cat. These techniques have been developed with the specific aims of achieving the trigeminal lesion and also preserving a satisfactory postoperative quality of life for the animal in order to make it possible to study the long-term effects of trigeminal dennervation. To the best of our knowledge, a detailed description of such a surgical methodology is lacking; reporting of these procedures may facilitate future research on the trigeminal nerve.
