This chapter describes methods used for the intraoperative neurophysiological assessment of spinal cord function, including the epidural, scalp, and electromyographic recording methods, to evaluate ascending and descending long-tract conduction. It reviews the neurophysiological, killed-end potential that indicates the site of traumatic injury and markers that have been established as indicators of transient and permanent surgically induced loss of function.

Abstract

This chapter describes methods used for the intraoperative neurophysiological assessment of spinal cord function, including the epidural, scalp, and electromyographic recording methods, to evaluate ascending and descending long-tract conduction. It reviews the neurophysiological, killed-end potential that indicates the site of traumatic injury and markers that have been established as indicators of transient and permanent surgically induced loss of function.
