SEP as A Sensory Pathway Integrity Check in Patients Undergoing Lumbar Endoscopic Spine Surgery Using the Yeung Endoscopic Spine System
16 Patients undergoing Lumbar Selective Endoscopic Discectomy (SED) using the Y.E.S.S. method was monitored intraoperatively for SEP (somatosensory evoked potentials) and EMG (electromyography) activity. 18 cases were analyzed. Questions: Is Intraoperative Neuromonitoring of SEP and EMG safe, effective and useful in SED cases? What information does it yield, if any?
