Neuromonitoring During SCS Placement: Physiological Basis
Release date: May 16, 2018
Expiration date: May 16, 2019
Estimated time to complete activity: 1 hour
This lecture will describe, in detail, the common IONM methodologies that are used during the placement of SCS leads as well as the physiology behind those methods. Common methods include the use of antidromic activation of the alpha-motor neurons via stimulation of the dorsal columns and the use of dorsal column collisions to lateralize the placement of leads. With new stimulation patterns the utilization of these techniques may be more important given standard awake lateralization cannot be used due to lack of standard clinical markers. Additionally, the physiology behind any IONM technique is critical to understand to both know the benefits and limitations of each technique.
This webinar aims to help the participant understand:
· Understanding the methodology for the most common IONM techniques employed in SCS placement
· Understand the physiology behind these methods
· Review of the technique literature
· Know the types of pain the SCS is beneficial for
