ABSTRACTIntraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring was performed in a patient by somatosensory evoked potential, motor evoked potential and free-running electromyography with intraoperative stimulation. It was verified that after decompression, there was an increase in the amplitude of motor evoked potential responses, showing an immediate improvement of the treated levels. Intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring for surgical lumbar disc herniation in an athlete allowed a dynamic neurophysiological diagnosis, differentiation of the involvement of compression at the central or foraminal levels, and clinical awareness of the […]
