Can intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring during cervical spine decompression predict post-operative segmental C5 palsy?
C5 nerve root palsy is a known complication after cervical laminectomy or laminoplasty, characterized by weakness of the deltoid and bicep brachii muscles. The efficacy of intraoperative monitoring of these muscles is currently unclear. In the curren

SEP Montage Variability Comparison during Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring.
Intraoperative monitoring is performed to provide real-time assessment of the neural structures that can be at risk during spinal surgery. Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) are the most commonly used modality for intraoperative monitoring. SEP s

Train-of-four test in intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring: differences between hand and foot train-of-four.
Comparison of T1-T4 decrement between upper and lower extremity muscles can indicate differences between recovery time from neuromuscular blockade, which may have repercussions for neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring. We investigated decrement

Overview of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring During Spine Surgery.
Intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring has had major advances in the past few decades. During spine surgery, the use of multimodality monitoring enables us to assess the integrity of the spinal cord, nerve roots, and peripheral nerves. The author

Postoperative infection in spine surgery: does the month matter?
The relationship between time of year and surgical site infection (SSI) following neurosurgical procedures is poorly understood. Authors of previous reports have demonstrated that rates of SSI following neurosurgical procedures performed during the s

Surgeon-driven neurophysiologic monitoring in a spinal surgery population.
This is a prospective observational study examining the use of a surgeon-driven intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring system. Intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring is becoming the standard of care for spinal surgeries with potential post-op

Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring for Prediction of Postoperative Neurological Improvement in a Child With Chiari Type I Malformation.
Although many surgical treatment strategies for Chiari malformation type I (CM-I) have been reported, the most appropriate surgical technique remains controversial. It is wholly ascribable to the complicacy of pathological condition in CM-I. Recently

Augmentation of motor evoked potentials using multi-train transcranial electrical stimulation in intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring during spinal surgery.
Transcranial motor evoked potentials (TcMEPs) are widely used to monitor motor function during spinal surgery. Improvements in transcranial stimulation techniques and general anesthesia have made it possible to record reliable and reproducible potent

Does CT Angiography Matter for Patients with Cervical Spine Injuries?
Cervical injury can be associated with vertebral artery injury. This study was performed to determine the impact of computed tomography (CT) angiography of the head and neck on planning treatment of cervical spine fracture, if these tests were ordere

Hybrid intraoperative pulmonary artery stenting in redo congenital cardiac surgeries.
Reconstruction of branch pulmonary arteries (PAs) can be challenging in redo congenital heart surgeries. Treatment options like percutaneous stent implantation and surgical patch angioplasty may yield suboptimal results. We present our experience wit
