Role of intra-operative neurophysiologic monitoring during decompression and neurolysis after peripheral nerve injury: Case report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper reports the case of a patient presenting motor and sensitive deficits of the left forearm and hand after a traumatic injury of the median, ulnar, and radial nerves. Decompression and neurolysis of the three nerves was performed. Spontaneous electromyographic activity and the amplitude of compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) were monitored. Surgery led to an increased amplitude of the aforesaid parameters and a long-term clinical improvement.
