Global Intraoperative Neuromonitoring Market 2017-2021
IONM technology involves the use of IONM devices to evaluate the function of nerves and the spinal cord during surgeries. The technology is used in various surgical procedures including neurosurgery, vascular surgery, (Ear-Nose-Throat) ENT surgery, orthopedic, and other general surgeries, as it provides immediate feedback and warning to surgeons before the occurrence of permanent nerve injuries. An IONM device employs various modalities such as somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP), transcranial stimulation for motor evoked potentials (TcMEP), electroencephalogram (EEG), and electromyography (EMG), and reduces the rate of intraoperative injuries and mortalities. SSEPs measure the transmission of sensations below and above the area of surgery and motor evoked potentials (MEPs) help measure neuroelectrical signals emanating from the spinal cord and peripheral muscles. EMG is used to detect the electrical potential produced by muscle cells, whereas EEG is used to detect the defects associated with the electrical activity of the brain.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global IONM market to grow at a CAGR of 8.92% during the period 2017-2021.
