[Somatosensory evoked potentials in surgery of the spine].


The authors report on their experience using cortical somatosensorially evoked potentials in 23 studies on 21 patients. The method is used intraoperatively when the spinal cord is at risk, for early identification of functional damage to the cord. The potentials found are classified according type of manifestation and compared with the results obtained by other authors.
