2021 | IONM in spinal surgery

FROM BASICS TO APPLICATION

Sophisticated surgical techniques and modern implants enable us to provide surgical treatment for increasingly complex diseases of the spine. Injuries to the spinal cord and neural structures during these procedures represent a risk and can have far-reaching consequences for the patient. Nowadays, surgical interventions on the spine with the corresponding risk potential are therefore hardly conceivable without IONM. This course introduces you to the monitoring of motor and somatosensory pathways. Learn how direct stimulation of nerve roots can monitor neural functions during a procedure and reduce the risk of post-operative dysfunction. Get an insight into the practical application of the IONM during a live surgery at the Clinic for Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery at Heidelberg University Hospital. Flyer
