Objective: The feasibility of motor evoked potentials (MEP) during surgery for intramedullary tumors has already been reported. However, it is unclear whether MEP monitoring contributes to extent of tumor removal or to functional outcome. Thus, the aim of this study is to determine the role of MEP monitoring[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
