BACKGROUND CONTEXT Intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring (IONM) is becoming standard-of-practice for many spine surgeons across the world. Neuromonitoring alerts such as decreased amplitude of motor evoked potentials (MEPs), change in baseline somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs), and triggered electromyography (EMG) are followed intraoperatively to help identify and prevent postoperative neurologic complications. Very little is published with respect to long-term clinical outcomes… CONTINUE READING
