VIDEO: Low incidence of peripheral nerve injury found from positioning during spine surgery

CHICAGO — Gurpreet S. Gandhoke, MD, discussed results of a large database study presented at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons Annual Meeting. In the study, Gandhoke and colleagues looked at the incidence of peripheral nerve injury from positioning during spine surgery. He said the incidence of peripheral nerve injury from positioning among patients was 0.3% and intraoperative monitoring showed high specificity and poor sensitivity in the detection of positioning-related nerve deficits.
