STUDY AIM To analyse the parallel use of transcranial electrical stimulation (TES) and direct cortical stimulation (DCS) for eliciting muscle motor evoked potentials (MMEPs) in intracranial aneurysm surgery; to correlate permanent or transient TES- and/or DCS-MMEP changes with surgical maneuvers and clinical motor outcome. PATIENTS AND METHODS TES and DCS were intraoperatively performed in 108 patients (51.5+/-14.7 years); MMEPs were obtained in muscles belonging to the vascular territory of… CONTINUE READING
