As an alternative to those patients who cannot be performed an awake spinal cord stimulation (SCS) or had been percutaneously implanted with poor pain relief outcomes, neurophysiological monitoring through transcranial motor evoked potentials (MEPs), somatosensory-evoked potentials (SSEPs) and free-run electromyography (EMG) under general anesthesia allows the correct placement of surgical leads and provide objective responses.
We read with interest the report by Zoia, and we would like to widen the picture by sharing our experience in Madrid’s COVID-19 reference center, one of the hardest hit areas in Europe. As neurosurgeons, we never would have imagined being in the eye of the storm. We hope our humble experience can be helpful to colleagues in other countries.
