• SSEP
  • By analogy with the steady-state response of a resonant circuit that follows the initial transient response he defined an idealized steady-state evoked potential (SSEP) as a form of response to repetitive sensory stimulation in which the constituent frequency components of the response remain constant with time in both amplitude and phase.

  • cortex
  • Electrocorticography (ECoG), or intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG), is a type of electrophysiological monitoring that uses electrodes placed directly on the exposed surface of the brain to record electrical activity from the cerebral cortex. (wikipedia.org)
  • This technique allowed Sherrington to determine that the precentral gyrus (pre-Rolandic area) is a motor cortex and the postcentral gyrus (post-Rolandic area) is a sensory cortex. (wikipedia.org)
  • posterior
  • Further modification of Foerster's technique by Fasano et al, described as "functional posterior rhizotomy," promoted the use of intraoperative electrostimulation for root selection instead of the Gros method of clinical identification. (medscape.com)
  • Anaesthesia
  • For example, a patient who consumes significant quantities of alcohol or illicit drugs could be undermedicated if they fail to disclose this fact, and this could lead to anaesthesia awareness or intraoperative hypertension. (wikipedia.org)
  • tool
  • Futhermore, it can be concluded that the use of SSEPs to evaluate the pedicle screw placement or similar interventions is not an appropriate tool itself, since, , it could be practically limited to sensory fibers of root. (jivresearch.org)
  • loss
  • [ 9 ] Severance of these specific inputs would allow for loss of tone without concomitant loss of other sensory input or motor control. (medscape.com)
  • effective
  • Prior to a planned procedure, the anaesthetist reviews medical records and/or interviews the patient to determine the best combination of drugs and dosages and the degree to which monitoring will be required to ensure a safe and effective procedure. (wikipedia.org)
  • central
  • Following the measurements of the F-wave latencies, the central root conduction time and foramenal segments were calculated and used for further monitoring. (jivresearch.org)
