Limitations of brain stem auditory evoked potentials for intraoperative monitoring during a posterior fossa operation: case report and technical note.


Journal Article

We have encountered an example of the insensitivity of brain stem auditory evoked potentials (BAEPs) for monitoring the brain stem during a posterior fossa operation. The addition of somatosensory evoked potential recording to conventional BAEP protocols is readily accomplished and is likely to improve the sensitivity of intraoperative electrophysiological assessment of brain stem function.
