This book deals with developments in the highly topical field, in Clinical Neurophysiology of namely the use of spinal or brain evoked potentials, nerve stimulation, or transcranial motor stimulation for monitoring function in the course of neurosurgical or orthopedic interventions. It is designed for the surgeons, anesthesiologists, neurologists and clinical neurophysiologists who are increasingly concerned about how best to deal with the many faceted challenges of monitoring the functional integrity of central or peripheral nervous systems in the operating theater. Emphasis is placed on a variety of state-of-the-art monitoring methodologies and results that are relevant for specific surgical interventions on the brain, brainstem, spinal cord, spinal roots, plexus or peripheral nerves. Also included are data about the practical design of facilities, pitfalls to be avoided, recent trends and advances. The inclusion of detailed protocols for the various monitoring methods should be found of practical value to implement a wide variety of surveillance issues.
