Title
(EN) NEUROLOGIC MONITORING SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE SURVEILLANCE NEUROLOGIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A method, system, and products that allow for accurate localization, virtual depiction, and testing of nerve(s) or neural structures that course through or around a proposed surgical site are described. The method and system employs a variety of types of neurodiagnostic tests that incorporate sensory, motor, and mixed nerve conduction studies in an orthodromic and antidromic fashion as well as utilizing triggered electromyography. This method, system, and products allow for a much more specific and sensitive method to assess the baseline function and continued integrity of nerves and neural structures prior to, during, and after a surgical procedure.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un procédé, un système et des produits qui permettent une localisation précise, une représentation virtuelle et un test d'un ou de plusieurs nerfs ou structures neurales qui courent à travers ou autour d'un site chirurgical proposé. Le procédé et le système emploient une pluralité de types de test de neurodiagnostic qui incorporent des études de conduction nerveuse sensorielle, motrice et mixte dans un mode orthodromique et antidromique, ainsi que l'utilisation d'une électromyographie déclenchée. Ce procédé, ce système et ces produits permettent à un procédé bien plus spécifique et sensible d'évaluer la fonction de ligne de base et l'intégrité continue des nerfs et des structures neurales avant, pendant et après une procédure chirurgicale.
