Neural Monitoring Book Excerpt:

Acute spinal injury although relatively uncommon can result in serious loss of motor and sensory function and is thus one of the most catastrophic medical conditions. In the work first reported here it has been demonstrated that intraoperative neural monitoring by electrophysiological means should now be considered standard care for surgical procedures that carry risk of CNS injury.

Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring Book Excerpt:

Intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring has shown a steady increase in use for surgeries in which neural structures may be at risk of injury. Some of the surgical techniques used carry inherent risks, and these risks have changed the way in which neurophysiologic monitoring has impacted patient safety and quality of care during surgical procedures. It is therefore crucial that those performing and interpreting intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring are adequately trained. This book is a comprehensive guide to the current practice of intraoperative neurophysiology with chapters on various modalities and clinical uses. Separate chapters devoted to anesthesia, operating room environment, special considerations in pediatrics and the interpretation and reporting of neurophysiologic data are useful and complementary. Questions and detailed answers on the topics covered can be found on the accompanying website for study review. This book will be useful to the trainee as well as the neurophysiologist already in practice.

The Audiologist s Handbook of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring Book Excerpt:

What is intraoperative neuropsyiological monitoring? How did this discipline evolve? Why is there a need for this clinical specialty? How does one function in the operating room? What are potential pitfalls and how does one resolve them? How does one get trained in intraoperative monitoring? These are just a few of the questions that arise when the term "intraoperative neuromonitoring" is mentioned. The purpose of this book is to provide satisfactory answers to these questions and more by addressing fundamental issues pertaining to intraoperative monitoring, in particular within the framework of clinical audiology. The focus is on neural functions that are most likely encountered by audiologists in conjunction with otology/neurotology and head-and-neck surgery operations, such as auditory function and motor cranial nerve function monitoring. While the facial nerve receives the most attention, other cranial nerves are also discussed in conjunction with certain operative procedures. The book includes descriptions of surgical procedures along with the appropriate neuromonitoring protocols. The author's hope is that the contents of this book will be instructive and that the book will engender sufficient interest and curiosity so that the reader will endeavor to seek additional information about this interesting, growing and clinically effective field. While this book is intended primarily for audiology students and practicing audiologists, its contents will be of assistance and interest to other health care providers seeking information about intraoperative monitoring.

Intraoperative Monitoring Book Excerpt:

In recent decades, the advances in and consolidation of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IOM) in several highly complex surgical areas have been undeniable. Currently all modalities of neurophysiological tests (SSEP, MEP, EMG, PEATC, VEP, BRAIN MAPPING, ETC) are performed in the operating room, where they are used to provide trans operative information on the patient’s neurological status in real time (monitoring), and to identify neural structures which are at immediate risk (mapping). With the inarguably positive impact of IOM on surgical outcomes, there is an increasing interest in reliable, technically focused literature. This volume provides cutting-edge information in the field of IOM, and highlights new neurophysiological tools being used in various surgeries. The book’s initial sections cover a range of topics, including an anatomical overview, electrical safety, and detailed technical descriptions of the neurophysiological tests used in IOM. The subsequent sections address e.g. the brain, brainstem, spinal cord, vascular and peripheral nerves, epilepsy, head and neck, movement disorders and special topics. Some chapters are accompanied by videos of surgeries and IOM so that the reader will have the real sensation of having been in the operating room and will gain an overview of the key steps. Written by experts in the field of IOM, the book offers a valuable resource for both experienced and early-career neurophysiologists, neurosurgeons, vascular and orthopedic surgeons, and surgeons involved with pelvic procedures. Further, its goal is to provide a real rapport, never before attained, between neurophysiologists and surgeons with a sole focus: excellence in terms of the final outcome.

Diagnostic Assessment and Treatment of Peripheral Nerve Tumors Book Excerpt:

Tumors involving peripheral nerves may be extremely challenging lesions to diagnose and treat. In order to optimize their management, physicians should have a thorough knowledge of peripheral nerve anatomy and pathology (both gross and microscopic), as well as familiarity with microsurgical techniques and intraoperative neurophysiological recording. This compendium deals with all aspects of tumors affecting peripheral nerves, from diagnosis to treatment; the topics it addresses range from epidemiology, anatomy, physiology, pathology, and clinical diagnosis to electrophysiology, imaging, genetic/cytomolecular aspects. Surgical approaches, biopsies and resection of various benign, malignant and pseudo-tumoral lesions, plexus tumors (both brachial and lumbosacral), and adjunctive treatment modalities and pain-related issues are described in detail. The book is intended not only for neurosurgeons, hand surgeons, plastic and orthopedic surgeons new to the field, but also for seasoned specialists who wish to update their knowledge with new insights based on robust experimental and clinical material. In addition, it will be a helpful tool for general and oncological surgeons who are sometimes faced with the treatment of mass lesions that may be potential nerve tumors, and for all practitioners who are engaged in the arduous struggle to bring relief to patients affected by these lesions.

Intracranial Aneurysms Book Excerpt:

Intracranial aneurysm result from complex interactions between cerebrovascular anatomy, vascular injury, and adaptive remodeling of the arterial wall and represent a cerebrovascular disorder with the potential for substantial morbidity and mortality. Most intracranial aneurysms occur in the larger arteries near the skull base, in or around the circle of Willis, but variants may appear virtually anywhere in the cerebral vasculature. The aneurysm can leak or rupture, causing life-threatening bleeding, and is the most common cause of spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage, the third most common form of stroke. Intracranial aneurysms affect about 1 in 10,000 people per year in the United States (approximately 27,000). Intracranial Aneurysms will address the natural history, biology, and basic management principles and treatment of aneurysms. The chapters also explore the unique features of each type or location of aneurysm while considering the medical, surgical, and endovascular options. Contributions are by members of the Endovascular Neurosurgery Research Group, a group of recognized expert neurosurgeons who specialize in cerebrovascular and endovascular management of aneurysms. Comprehensively covers the basic mechanisms, history, management and treatment of intracranial aneurysms Written for researchers, residents and clinical practitioners in clinical neuroscience, neurology and neurosurgery Contains contributions by expert neurosurgeons of the Endovascular Neurosurgery Research Group
