BACKGROUND To determine the reliability and usefulness of intraoperative monitoring of the abducens nerve during extended endonasal endoscopic skull base tumor resection. METHODS We performed abducens nerve intraoperative monitoring in 8 patients with giant clival lesions recording with needle electrodes sutured directly into the lateral rectus muscles of the eye to evaluate spontaneous electromyographic activity and triggered responses following stimulation of the abducens nerves. RESULTS… CONTINUE READING
