STUDY DESIGN Motor-evoked potentials from the external anal sphincter were analyzed using transcranial electrical stimulation during spinal surgery in patients under general anesthesia. OBJECTIVE To investigate whether motor-evoked potentials from the external anal sphincter could be elicited by transcranial electrical stimulation under general anesthesia. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Lumbosacral surgery often places nerve rootlets at risk for injury during operative dissection. Specifically… CONTINUE READING
