Sakhalin hospital received new equipment for removal of neoplasms

The multifunctional system of neurophysiological monitoring "Neuro-IOM" appeared in the neurosurgeons of the Sakhalin regional hospital. The equipment helps in removing bulk neoplasms of the brain and spinal cord, as well as interventions on the peripheral nervous system and a number of other operations.

The equipment warns the doctor about possible damage to the nerve structures, and the equipment is also used to fix the spine with metal structures - doctors impose electrodes on certain muscles and we get motor responses that are reflected on the monitor. In most countries, IOM is mandatory for many types of surgical interventions, such as spinal, brain, and brainstem operations. During operations to eliminate scoliosis, the equipment determines the tactics of the surgical intervention itself.

According to the press service of the regional government, the equipment in the medical institutions of the Sakhalin region is updated as part of the implementation of the state program for the development of health care in Russia. Previously, surgeons from the regional hospital used the equipment of an earlier generation for observation. The new system performs many functions and will allow in the future to conduct more complex operations.

The device is used not only for neurosurgical operations, but also during endocrinological interventions, for example, when removing the thyroid gland. It helps not to touch the recurrent laryngeal nerve, damage to which can lead to a partial loss of the patient’s voice. According to the neurosurgeon doctor Constantan Mogilny, now the new equipment in the regional hospital is used two or three times a week. One of the last operations is the removal of a volumetric neoplasm of the right frontal lobe. New equipment during the manipulations showed the border, which could not be crossed because of the high risk of making a person disabled.
