DIRECT NERVE STIMULATION
for nerve stimulation in ENT, OMS and skull-base surgery as well as peripheral nerve surgery
With the "Direct Nerve Stimulation" user program of TWISTER® MM, motoric nerves can be electrically stimulated during surgery and their response can be verified visually or by palpation at the innervated target muscle. This method for localisation and functional monitoring is applied in the areas of ENT, OMS and skull-base surgery as well during peripheral nerve surgery.
TWISTER® MM may be employed for monitoring the N. facialis and N. trigeminus during parotidectomy or mastoidectomy. Another field of application is monitoring of the N. accessorius during neck dissection or of the branches of the brachial plexus in tumour patients, patients injured in accidents or patients with compression syndrome.
for direct stimulation of the cortex in neurosurgery and epilepsy surgery
Direct stimulation of the cortex with the "Cortical Mapping" user program of TWISTER® MM has been designed for localisation of the motor areas in the brain and the speech centre in neurosurgery and epilepsy surgery.
