The Reliability of Neuromonitoring to Detect Neurologic Injury during Lateral Interbody Fusion

Summary of background data: Lateral interbody fusion is a minimally invasive procedure that is gaining popularity. Hip flexion weakness has been noted postoperatively but the cause of the weakness still remains unknown. The objective of this study is to evaluate if conventional neuromonitoring with electromyography (EMG), somatosensory (SSEP), and motor evoked potentials (MEP) allows surgeons to detect potential nerve injuries that standard EMG monitoring may miss.
