OBJECT The authors describe their technique of electrophysiological mapping to assist pericollicular approaches into the rhomboid fossa. METHODS Surgical approaches to the rhomboid fossa can be optimized by direct electrical stimulation of superficially located nuclei and fibers. Electrophysiological mapping allows identification of facial nerve fibers, nuclei of the abducent and hypoglossal nerves, motor nucleus of the trigeminal nerve, and the ambiguous nucleus. Stimulation at the surface… CONTINUE READING
