Neurophysiologic techniques provide a valuable addition to the armamentarium of tools for the evaluation of sensory and motor function in the pediatric spinal cord. These techniques include median, radial, and ulnar nerve evoked potentials from the upper extremity; common peroneal and tibial nerve evoked potentials from the lower extremity; dermatomal potentials; and compound muscle action potentials and compound nerve action potentials. The techniques that evaluate the sensory system have been… CONTINUE READING
