Motor-evoked potentials (MEP) during brainstem surgery to preserve corticospinal function


Sarnthein, J; Bozinov, O; Melone, A G; Betalanffy, H (2011). Motor-evoked potentials (MEP) during brainstem surgery to preserve corticospinal function. Acta Neurochirurgica, 153(9):1753-1759.

Abstract

Brainstem surgery bears a risk of damage to the corticospinal tract (CST). Motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) are used intraoperatively to monitor CST function in order to detect CST damage at a reversible stage and thus impede permanent neurological deficits. While the method of MEP is generally accepted, warning criteria in the context of brainstem surgery still have to be agreed on.
