There are many things we find important to the world of healthcare and neuromonitoring. Here we post helpful information for our patients, hospitals, and surgeons.

Thoracolumbar Surgical-tEMG

December 08, 2021

Walking is something many of us take for granted. Many of us do without a second thought, and walking gives us a level of freedom and accessibility that many other people don’t have. However, as patients get older, their mobility can be challenged by the obstacles of aging. When combined with all of the other hurdles patients face throughout their lives, the possibility of one medical victory can be enough to give them hope.

Positioning Anterior Cervical Upper MEP

November 20, 2021

People carry a lot of stress in their neck, upper back, and shoulders. This is because this body area undergoes significant use, from hunching over a computer screen to manual labor and working with your hands. This amount of use causes additional wear and tear on the body, which adds stress to the body's muscles, bones, and nerves. In addition, underlying structural problems exacerbate these day-to-day events and stressors.

L4-5 OLIF PSF, Surgical EMG

November 20, 2021

A history of cervical fusion, lumbar decompression, and hypertension left this patient anxious for long-term relief. As a result, the surgical team opted for an L4-L5 oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF), typically reserved for instances where conservative treatments have proven ineffective to resolve his lower back pain and the tingling and numbness in his legs and quality of life are affected. Additionally, the patient was scheduled for a posterior spinal fusion as well. Both of these procedures were prepped for success thanks to support from Axis Neuromonitoring.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring for ACDF

September 23, 2021

Mobility problems can be detrimental to a person's quality of life, regularly keeping them from working, traveling, relaxing, and more. We endure these changes in mobility as we age enough without the implications of radiculopathy, stenosis, and spinal cord compression. One 40-year old male patient presented with these conditions in his cervical spine at C5-C7.

Intraoperative Neuromonitoring for Pedicle Screw Placement

September 23, 2021

After being in a motor vehicle accident, the patient experienced severe back pain due to an L4 fracture. L4 fractures are synonymous with severe back, leg, and arm pain. Someone suffering from this kind of injury might also feel weakness or numbness in these areas if the fracture injures the spinal cord's nerves. The surgical team determined the best course of action for this patient to be a pedicle screw placement at L4.

IONM for LLIF, Laminectomy, and Removal of Hardware

September 23, 2021

Spine disorders are like chains of dominoes. One vertebra dysfunction can easily affect the next. Each bone depends on the next for support and structure as each works together in harmony to produce the function and movement we rely on to live comfortably. As these diagnoses pile up, people can quickly go from one minor issue into complex problems that take dynamic solutions to treat. 

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Patients With Cardiovascular Conditions

By Admin on August 19, 2021

Surgery is always a serious undertaking. All things come with risks, and when a patient is under anesthesia and on the operating table, this is more true than ever. To further complicate these delicate procedures, patient history can significantly impact the success rate and complication risk. One of the ways a patient's history can most impact surgery lies in their cardiovascular health. A patient with hypertension or hyperlipidemia, for example, risks experiencing cardiovascular events, cerebrovascular events, bleeding, and mortality.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Patients With Multiple Spinal Conditions

By Admin on August 04, 2021

Chronic back pain, spine disorders, and associated conditions can be seriously debilitating. The spinal column is responsible for a large majority of our posture and balance. When the spine is not operating at peak performance, subsequent conditions are accelerated and exacerbated as strain is put on adjacent muscles, vertebrae, and nerves. Because of this domino effect, patients experiencing conditions like spondylolisthesis, spondylosis, and degenerative disc disease are at a greater risk for increased severity of their condition and additional complications.
