Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) offers many advantages for cranial neurosurgical interventions. By using IONM, surgeons can record motor evoked potentials at latencies of a few milliseconds and are thus able to preserve cranial nerve function. Unfortunately, with the standard stimulation method, these potentials may be superimposed by the electrical artifact of the stimulation impulse, which makes it difficult to interpret the signal. A new stimulation artifact reduction technique has been successfully trialled in a recent study* conducted by neurophysiologists at the University Hospital of Zurich in collaboration with inomed Medizintechnik GmbH. The results of the study were published in the journal “Clinical Neurophysiology” in April 2021.
