Variability in amplitude and stimulation threshold values in motor evoked potential (MEP) monitoring during the resection of brain lesions.

Criteria for motor evoked potential (MEP) monitoring include the amplitude criterion and threshold criterion. The aim of our study for the amplitude c...

Continuous subcortical motor evoked potential stimulation using the tip of an ultrasonic aspirator for the resection of motor eloquent lesions.
Resection of a motor eloquent lesion has become safer because of intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IOM). Stimulation of subcortical motor evoked potentials (scMEPs) is increasingly used to optimize patient safety. So far, scMEP stimulatio

Outcomes of combined somatosensory evoked potential, motor evoked potential, and electroencephalography monitoring during carotid endarterectomy.
While much has been written about multiple methods of neuromonitoring during carotid endarterectomy (CEA), there has been relatively little discussion of the use of triple monitoring via somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) and motor evoked potenti

Modulation of Cortical Motor Evoked Potential After Stroke During Electrical Stimulation of the Lateral Cerebellar Nucleus.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) targeting the dentato-thalamo-cortical (DTC) pathway at its origin in the lateral cerebellar nucleus (LCN) has been shown to enhance motor recovery in a rodent model of cortical ischemia. LCN DBS also yielded frequency-sp

Detection of acute femoral artery ischemia during neuroembolization by somatosensory and motor evoked potential monitoring.
Neuromonitoring can be used to map out particular neuroanatomical tracts, define physiologic deficits secondary to specific pathology or intervention, or predict postoperative outcome and proves essential in the detection of central and peripheral is

Transcranial electric stimulation for intraoperative motor evoked potential monitoring: dependence of required stimulation current on interstimulus interval value.
To evaluate the relationship between stimulus intensity by constant current transcranial electric stimulation and interstimulus interval (ISI) for eliciting muscle motor evoked potentials (MEPs) in three different hand muscles and the tibialis anteri

Conjunct SEP and MEP monitoring in resection of infratentorial lesions: lessons learned in a cohort of 210 patients.
During the surgical removal of infratentorial lesions, intraoperative neuromonitoring is mostly focused on cranial nerve assessment and brainstem auditory potentials. Despite the known risk of perforating vessel injury during microdissection within t

The Influence of Positioning and Muscle Activity on Motor Threshold during Motor Cortex Stimulation Programming.
Background: Stimulation parameters are crucial for the efficacy and safety of motor cortex stimulation (MCS). Motor threshold (MT) can be defined as the lowest voltage that produces motor contraction. The final stimulation parameters are always a sma

Low-threshold monopolar motor mapping for resection of lesions in motor eloquent areas in children and adolescents.
Resection of lesions close to the primary motor cortex (M1) and the corticospinal tract (CST) is generally regarded as high-risk surgery due to reported rates of postoperative severe deficits of up to 50%. The authors' objective was to determine the
