Intraoperative Somatosensory Evoked Potential Diagnoses in Brachial Plexus Lesions
The evaluation of the brachial plexus by the aid of somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP) monitoring was first described by Zalis et al. in 1970 and Zverina and Kredba as well as Rosen et al. in 1977. In 1984 Sugioka reported on the importance of SSEP monitoring in distinguishing between traction lesions distal and proximal to the dorsal root ganglia in the operating room.
