Comparison of Spinal Cord Evoked Potentials Elicited by Spinal Cord and Peripheral Nerve Stimulation
Two techniques of epidural spinal cord monitoring, SCEP, produced by spinal cord stimulation and spinal SEP following peripheral nerve stimulation, were evaluated in animal studies of the effect of compression and distraction. Although the two responses were affected in parallel, SCEP was the more sensitive and is therefore preferred for clinical application.
