2022 | cIONM in thyroid surgery

BASICS AND ADVANCED METHODS

This course focuses on the use of continuous IONM during thyroid surgeries. After a brief introduction into basic aspects (e.g., true loss-of-signal vs. artefacts), experienced users demonstrate hands-on the application of cIONM, including tips and tricks and potential pit-falls. FLYER

Topic

  • Continuous intraoperative neuromonitoring (cIONM) during thyroid surgery
  • (Auto)fluorescence imaging parathyroid glands

Target group

  • Doctors who already use cIONM and who want to deepen their knowledge
  • Doctors who use intermittent IONM and who want to newly establish cIONM in their clinic

In this course you will learn

  • cIONM basics with regard to technology, application and recent innovations
  • mechanisms / causes of function-related signal changes; differentiation between true loss-of-signal and artefacts
  • anaesthesiological aspects of cIONM
  • tips and tricks for particular patients or operative situations (children, tracheal resections)
  • cIONM system set-up in the OR; tips and tricks for the preparation of thyroid surgeries, such as tube selection and patient positioning
  • optimal placing of breathing tube and electrodes; optimal nerve stimulation
  • intermittent and continuous stimulation of Vagus, RLN and SLN
  • live-surgery demonstration of cIONM in thyroidectomies; if feasible, with central and (uni)lateral lymphadenectomy
  • consequences of intraoperative signal changes or signal loss (change in surgical strategy)
  • correct labelling of documented signals, (judicially sufficient) documentation of IONM findings
  • IONM data quality check

As an extra:

  • (auto)fluorescence imaging of parathyroid glands
