Regarding trigeminal anesthesia, what is "balaclava helmet anesthesia" and what is "snout anesthesia"?

I am a student in a medical school.. in clinics the professor was discussing regarding variants of trigeminal anesthesia. normally as we know, we should check for loss seperately in the V1, V2 and V3 divisions of trigeminal nerve, and look seperately for pain, temperature and touch. We all know that the sensory nucleus of trigeminal n. runs from midbrain-pons junction to upper cervical region. Could anyone please specify what are the balaclava helmet aneshesia and snout anesthesia?? Has it got to something with syringobulbia or tabes dorsalis?? If yes, I shall really grateful to the person if he/she could explain how it happens... Thanks everybody...

Check the links below.
I have seen what you describe as "snout anaesthesia" in someone with syringobulbia.

Medical terminology help?

I have had to research 500+ words this week and need a help with the best definition for the following words because I keep reading different answers...
Carotid Arterial
Cervical disk herniation
Dorsalis Pedis

Arcane means mysterious, secret, obscure

Belligerent means hostile or aggressive. (Warlike)

(These words above are in any dictionary and sometimes there IS no one word that can define another)

Carotid artery is more complex. The common carotid artery comes in a pair, one on each side of the body (left and right). The common carotid is a major artery and supplies the head and neck with blood. It branches in the neck into two other arteries: one branch is the external carotid artery and the other branch is the internal carotid artery. Each of the ext. & int. carotids branches off into several smaller arteries.

Cervical disc herniation means that one of the elastic, fibrocartilaginous intervertebral discs that are like cushions serving as the spine's shock absorbing system has ruptured and been pushed outside its normal boundary.

Dorsalis pedis must be a reference to the artery. It's a continuation of the anterior tibial artery but the name changes to dorsalis pedis when anterior tibial crosses the ankle joint.

Unless there's more to your medical condition than PAD, no.
Depending on the location of the blockages in your legs, they may be easily fixed by a competent vascular surgeon.  (+ info)
