Intraoperative Neuromonitoring Unit

Intraoperative monitoring aims to protect functions of brain, brain stem, cranial nerves and peripheral nerves in a surgery. If brain or spinal cord is damaged, potential results include immobility, sensorial deficits and loss of hearing or speaking depending on the involved part.

Recently, intraoperative monitoring is commonly used in neurosurgical procedures in order to prevent such adverse events.

Intraoperative neuromonitoring team may evaluate functions of nervous tissues in selected patients during surgery and thus, a potential damage secondary to surgical procedure can be detected early and notified to the surgeon.

Neurosurgeon may modify the operative strategy in the light of these details in order to avoid damage to nervous tissues of the patient. Thus, it is possible to prevent potential postoperative damage to functions of speaking, movement, hearing and senses.

Which patients require intraoperative neuromonitoring?

Intraoperative neuromonitoring is required in surgeries that pose high risk regarding nervous damage. Neurosurgery departments and spinal surgery divisions commonly use this service for brain, spine and spinal cord surgeries.

The team of intraoperative neuromonitoring unit consists of neurologists and technicians who are educated on neurophysiology. This team joins the surgery along with the surgeon in high-risk operations that may damage healthy nervous tissues.

Intraoperative neuromonitoring team cooperates closely with the surgeon and the anesthesiologist during surgery.

Neurophthalmology

This unit deals with diseases that involve optic nerve and optic tracts that ensure communication between eyes and brain.
