Intra-Operative Monitoring

The charity has recently, in conjunction with the Trigeminal Neuralgia Suport Group, funded the provision of sophisticated Intra-Operative Nerve Monitoring equipment. The ISIS-IOM system was supplied by Inomed UK and is seen as a ‘Gold Standard’ in the monotoring of nerve systems during neurosurgical procedures, enabling surgeons to operate with confidence close to major neural nerve pathways both in the brain and spine. The ISIS IOM system is capable of simultaneously monitoring up to sixteen nerves (previous equipment was only capable of monitoring two) and will be useful in a diverse range of neurosurgical cases.

Smile4Wessex contributed 80% of the near £38,000 cost, with the balance being provided by the Trigeminal Neuralgia Support Group, a condition for which this equipment will be particularly beneficial in surgical intervention.
