First Edition of Härtel's classic textbook of local anesthesia. Härtel is known for "Härtel's method" of treating trigeminal neuralgia, which involves passing a needle from the mouth, inserting it about the level of the upper midmolar tooth, and passing it inward until the point reaches the bone in front and to the outer side of the foramen ovale, allowing an alcohol injection to be made to relieve the pain.Book Id: 44968
