Nerve Stimulation Monitoring

Content Contributor

Evolution of Nerve Stimulation Monitoring

Nerve stimulation during thyroidectomy has been described in the 1940s, where palpation of the larynx during recurrent laryngeal nerve stimulation was used as a confirmatory measure. In the 1980’s, palpation of the posterior cricoarytenoid muscle, with concurrent nerve stimulation, was described as an intraoperative measure.

These measures are grouped into the category of intermittent intraoperative nerve monitoring. In the early 2000’s, continuous intraoperative nerve monitoring gained popularity as a means to monitor nerve function throughout an entire surgery. Continuous monitoring while in close proximity to nerves can help achieve complete resection, while keeping a safe distance from nerve structures.
