BACKGROUND During spinal surgery, intraoperative monitoring of motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) is a useful means of assessing the intraoperative integrity of corticospinal pathways. However, MEPs are known to be particularly sensitive to the suppressive effects of inhalational halogenated anesthetic agents. OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of increasing end-tidal concentrations of desflurane and sevoflurane anesthesia in a background of propofol and remifentanil with multipulse cortical… CONTINUE READING
