Neurophysiological detection of impending spinal cord injury during scoliosis surgery.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Despite the many reports attesting to the efficacy of intraoperative somatosensory evoked potential monitoring in reducing the prevalence of iatrogenic spinal cord injury during corrective scoliosis surgery, these afferent neurophysiological signals can provide only indirect evidence of injury to the motor tracts since they monitor posterior… (More)
