Intracranial aneurysm rupture presents a high risk of neurologic morbidity and mortality. To avoid a potential rupture in an intact aneurysm or to facilitate management and minimize the risk of a re-bleed in a ruptured aneurysm, treatment modalities, such as endovascular interventions and surgical aneurysm clipping, are performed. To help provide a real-time functional assessment of neurologic function intraoperatively and thus allow identification and correction of potentially deleterious maneuvers, intraoperative neuromonitoring can be performed. There is growing literature support for use of evoked potentials for these procedures, particularly for intracranial aneurysm clipping.
