BACKGROUND Neurophysiological monitoring is routinely used during neurosurgical procedures. Use of neurophysiological monitoring has extended to neuroendovascular procedures, but evidence of its impact on clinical outcome in this arena is limited. OBJECTIVE To report the incidence of significant intraoperative somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP) changes during neuroendovascular surgery and to correlate SSEP changes with clinical outcomes. METHODS Patients who underwent neuroendovascular… CONTINUE READING
