Motor evoked potentials (MEP) during brainstem surgery as a predictor of postoperative corticospinal function

J. Sarnthein, A.G. Melone & H. Bertalanffy
Objective: Brainstem surgery carries the risk of damage to the corticospinal tract. Intraoperative motor evoked potentials (MEP) are used to monitor motor function in order to detect damage at a reversible stage and thus impede permanent neurological deficits. However, warning criteria in this context[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
