Overview

Intraoperative recording of neuroelectric potentials allows for the assessment of nervous system function continuously throughout a surgical operation. Revising and expanding the 1995 edition of his text on the subject, Moller (U. of Texas at Dallas) adds new chapters related to monitoring of the spinal motor system and deep brain stimulation. Otherwise the general structure of the text remains relatively untouched, with the general principles of intraoperative monitoring discussed in the first section, followed by sections on sensory systems; motor systems; peripheral nerves; surgical guidance provided by intraoperative electrophysiological monitoring; and practical issues such as the role of anesthesia, equipment and data analysis, and the importance of evaluation.
