Enhancing Intra-operative Decision Making in Brachial Plexus Exploration and Repair, Nerve Transfers, Targeted Muscle Re-innervation and Complicated Revision Surgery using the Checkpoint Nerve Stimulator/Locator
This program will discuss and demonstrate the use of the Checkpoint® Nerve Stimulator/Locator in brachial plexus exploration and repair, complex peripheral nerve reconstruction cases, and the latest in nerve transfer indications in spinal cord injury. Additionally, intra-operative nerve assessment and clinical decision-making will be addressed, as well as the application of stimulation for nerve location and mapping in complex exposure cases and targeted muscle re-innervation. Lastly, Dr. Angeles will update us on his study using the Checkpoint® for prolonged intra-operative stimulation for enhanced nerve regeneration in nerve repair and nerve transfer procedures.
