Direct Stimulation Of Spinal Nerve Roots To Determine Sensory And Motor Innervation Patterns

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to collect data while monitoring muscles and nerves during spine surgery. The data being collected and analyzed will be used to learn more about how the body's nerves and muscles are distributed and develop a map of human muscle innervation patterns.

Detailed Study Description

In this large scale study it is proposed to examine root-to-muscle innervation directly, using the standard Intra-Operative Monitoring procedures during scheduled cervical and lumbar spinal surgeries. The study would directly map muscle and sensory distributions of nerve root innervations with no additional risk to patients.
