Description
Application of deformity correction spinal surgery has increased substantially over the past three decades in parallel with improvements in surgical techniques. Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IOM) techniques, including somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs), muscle evoked potentials (MEPs), and spontaneous electromyography (free-run EMG), have also improved surgical outcome by reducing the risk of iatrogenic neural injury. In this article, we review IOM techniques and their applications in spinal deformity surgery. We also summarize results of selected studies including hundreds of spinal correction surgeries. These studies indicate that multimodal IOM of both motor and sensory responses is superior to either modality alone for reducing the incidence of neural injury during surgery.
