Intraoperative Cranial Nerve Monitoring in Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Book Excerpt:

This book covers the scope of cranial nerve monitoring of all cranial nerves that are of practical importance in head, neck, and thyroid surgery. It discussed enhanced patient outcomes in a wide array of surgical procedures in the head and neck that require the maintenance of complex regional functions by protecting cranial nerve integrity. Organized into four parts, the book begins with Part I offering historical perspectives on the subject while simultaneously reviewing various basic and advanced electrophysiology. Part II thoroughly reviews the extra-temporal bone facial nerve (CN VII), Glossopharyngeal Nerve (CN IX), Vagal/Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve (CN X), Spinal Accessory Nerve (CN XI), and Hypoglossal Nerve (CN XII). Subsequent chapters in Part III provide a complete and applied understanding of the neurophysiological principles that facilitate the surgeon’s ability to monitor any nerve and intraoperative neural stimulation and nerve monitoring. The book presents various techniques as the standard of care to provide optimal neural detection, understand the neural functional real-time status during surgery and optimize specific surgical outcomes such as thyroid surgical outcomes. Closing chapters offer essential conversations regarding ethical considerations in nerve monitoring and medical malpractice. Filling a gap in the literature, Intraoperative Cranial Nerve Monitoring in Otolaryngology: Head and Neck Surgery provides a single source for surgeons who wish to optimize their outcomes in patient care and accelerate their learning curve to the level of more experienced surgeons.

The Audiologist s Handbook of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring Book Excerpt:

The Audiologist's Handbook of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring is a comprehensive and practical guide on cranial nerve intraoperative monitoring for audiology students and audiologists. The author shares his expertise gained from years of experience in the operating room with other audiologists and health care providers. The handbook was written with the student, fellow and relatively novice monitoring clinician in mind. However, individuals beyond a beginner level can also benefit from this book, which is illustrated with cases and appropriate figures to guide the learning and reviewing of intraoperative monitoring applications. The topics will also be of assistance and interest to other health care providers seeking information about intraoperative monitoring--specifically training IOM technologists and otolaryngology or neurosurgery residents and fellows. The initial chapters of the handbook introduce the reader to basic tenants of electromyography, evoked potential recording, and neuroanatomy. The following chapters detail intraoperative monitoring for seven different surgical procedures most commonly encountered by audiologists. The last two chapters focus on considerations for establishing a neuromonitoring program, including five specific protocols that could be used step-by-step in the operating room to set up and conduct neuromonitoring for a surgical procedure. In addition to this comprehensive review of intraoperative monitoring, readers will benefit from the videos illustrating neurophysiological events occurring during surgical procedures.

Degenerative Cervical Myelopathy and Radiculopathy Book Excerpt:

Degenerative disorders of the cervical spine are among the more common reasons why patients seek medical attention or consult with a spine specialist. These conditions can lead to neck pain and/or neurological deficit that can significantly compromise an individual’s quality of life. Despite the regularity of these conditions, there remains both uncertainty and controversy regarding optimal management. No standard of care exists, however there are nuances related to a patients history, clinical presentation, and imaging that may make one approach more conducive to clinical success. This text is intended to serve as a comprehensive, up-to-date resource for clinicians involved in the management of patients with cervical degenerative disease. The text is divided into sections, organized in a clinically strategic manner. The initial chapters address the basics of cervical spine anatomy and biomechanics as well as the pathophysiology leading to various cervical degenerative disorders and the possible neurological sequelae. Subsequent chapters outline characteristics of the clinical presentation and the various diagnostic modalities to evaluate these patients. Key elements involved in the surgical-decision making process are covered, providing the necessary elements to establish a solid foundation for treatment planning. The final sections discusses specific procedures; including traditional approaches as well as more recent developments such as motion preservation surgery and minimally invasive techniques. The last section focuses on challenging clinical scenarios that require advanced surgical consideration. Individual chapters are organized with an introductory outline containing key chapter elements. Chapters focusing on specific pathological entities include discussions regarding pathophysiology, genetics, and risk factors. Those describing surgical procedures include a discussion on indications/contraindications, pre-operative planning, surgical technique, post-operative care, and complication avoidance. Chapter authors present their personal experience enhancing the information from current, evidence-based, referenced material. When appropriate, case presentations are added to provide a practical application of chapter’s key points. This text, based on relevant, up-to-date clinical information and the cumulative experience of current spine experts, offers physicians the necessary tools involved in the decision-making process to formulate the optimal treatment plan for an individual patient. In addition, identification of knowledge gaps will hopefully stimulate future research and the evolution of cervical spondylotic treatments.
