    Background. The trigeminocardiac reflex (TCR) is a relatively recently described brainstem reflex in the fields of neurosurgery which leads to a simultaneous drop in mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate of at least 20% from baseline levels after stimulation of a sensible branch of the...
