Although EMG recordings from mimic muscles have become the standard for intra-operative facial nerve monitoring, few data are available concerning other motor cranial nerves (MCN). Auditory brainstem responses (ABR) are a proven tool for intra-operative hearing preservation, but have their limitations, suggesting the application of supplementary methods. This paper describes new developments of MCN and cochlear nerve monitoring in skull base surgery. Up to 2 x 8 EMG channels were recorded after… CONTINUE READING
