130 cases operated by the senior author in 30 years utilizing neurophysiological monitoring, using lumbosacral discectomy and decompression for canal stenosis and destabilization by immediate fixation using MRI compatible titanium pedicle rods and screw under intraoperative Neurophysiological monitoring of somato sensory evoked potential and motor evoked potential, which helped immensely in preventing damage to neural structure and decreasing the chances of mortality and morbidity for patients and confidence and reliable method for neuro-spinal surgeon.
