Spine Surgery

When using the C2 NerveMonitor in Spine Surgery, the user is guided intuitively through each step; starting from the correct positioning of the needle electrodes to connecting the cables to the system.  This makes neuromonitoring during spinal surgery an easy standard to adopt as a part of the surgical procedure.

The C2 Spine Software includes an integrated twitch-test (relaxation monitoring). This test is used to automatically check the pharmacological relaxation status of the patient’s muscles. This is crucial for effective recording of signals during spinal surgery.

The muscles are continuously monitored when the software is in measuring mode. If a relevant activity occurs – for example, by direct nerve manipulation – the surgeon is informed of this visually and acoustically.

Pedicle screw testing and stimulation capabilities of the C2 make automatic identification of the respective stimulation threshold value possible and thus the position of the screw within the pedicle can be inferred. Essential information is provided quickly and easily and is displayed for users during spinal surgery.

The C2 Spine Software automatically saves all muscle responses and stimulation limits in one document for the subsequent report. As a result, it is possible to review every stimulation response for the procedure at a later date.
