Intraoperative visual system monitoring of lesions with a close relationship to the optic apparatus by using light flashes reportedly is difficult to perform, and the results are too unreliable to interpret. The authors used direct epidural electrical stimulation of the optic nerve (ON) during surgery instead of light flashes. Four patients were included in this feasibility study. In 3 patients-1 each harboring a planum sphenoidale meningioma, a tuberculum sellae meningioma, and an intraorbital… CONTINUE READING
