Discovery of a new waveform for intraoperative monitoring of hemifacial spasms

Abstract

Surgeons often rely on intraoperative electrophysiological monitoring to determine whether decompression is sufficient during microvascular decompression surgery for hemifacial spasms. A new monitoring method is needed when an abnormal muscle response is occasionally not available or is unreliable. This study was an observational clinical trial exploring a… (More)
