Through real-time assessments of how the patient's nervous system is functioning throughout a surgical procedure, Neurophysiology in Neurosurgery presents vital techniques to guide surgeons in their efforts to minimize the risks of unintentional damage to healthy nervous tissue. Neurophysiology in Neurosurgery provides a comprehensive overview of the most up-to-date intraoperative neurophysiological techniques used by neurophysiologists, neurosurgeons, and neuroanesthesiologists from the United States, Europe, and Asia. By their nature, many forms of surgery that involve a patient's nervous system run the risk of inducing damage to important neural structures, even though the primary surgical goal was achieved (e.g. tumor removal). The damage can cause significant impairment and prove detrimental to the patient's way of life after the operation, if not directly threaten the patient's life. It is imperative that each surgeon minimizes the damage. Neurophysiology in Neurosurgery is a valuable educational tool that describes the theoretical and practical aspects of intraoperative monitoring through example. The authors provide in-depth descriptions of the most advanced techniques in intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring and guidelines for the management of neuroanesthesia during MEP monitoring.
