A letter to the editor is presented in response to the article "Stem Cells in the Treatment of Chronic Spinal Cord Injury: Evaluation of Somatosensitive Evoked Potentials in 39 Patients," by A.F. Cristante, T.E. Barros-Filho, N. Tatsui, A. Mendrone, J.G. Caldas, A. Camargo and colleagues in the...
- The long-term effects of pre-treatment with activated protein C in a rat model of compression-induced spinal cord injury. Taoka, Y; Schlag, M G; Hopf, R; Redl, H // Spinal Cord;Dec2000, Vol. 38 Issue 12, p754
OBJECTIVES:&EMSP;:Recently, we demonstrated that activated protein C (APC) can lessen the severity of spinal cord injury (SCI) in rats during the acute and subacute phases. The purpose of the present study is to determine the long-term effects of pre-treatment with APC following SCI in rats....

- Loss of Motor Evoked Potentials during Distraction. Lundell, Paula R. // International Student Journal of Nurse Anesthesia;Summer2010, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p38
The anesthesia management for a short procedure, such as distraction, can be challenging when patient immobility is necessary and the loss of motor evoked potentials (MEPs) are undesirable. Distraction, the lengthening of growing rods, is typically done every 6 months after the initial spinal...
- An open-label, randomized, parallel-group study of perioperative epoetin alfa versus standard of care for blood conservation in major elective spinal surgery: safety analysis. // Advances in Orthopaedics;Jun2010, Vol. 2 Issue 2, p77
In this randomized trial, the authors explored the incidence of thrombotic complications in spinal surgery patients treated with epoietin alfa versus standard care.
- Early Detection of Pedicle Screw-Related Spinal Cord Injury By Continuous Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM). Jahangiri, Faisal R.; Sheryar, Muhammad; Behairy, Yaser Al // Neurodiagnostic Journal (ASET - The Neurodiagnostic Society);Dec2014, Vol. 54 Issue 4, p323
Pedicle screw placement has a high risk of damaging the motor and sensory pathways due to the close proximity to the spinal cord and nerve roots. Early detection and prevention of injury can be achieved by utilizing Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEP) and Transcranial electrical Motor Evoked...
