Physiologic Assessment Services, a Medsurant Health Practice, offers Neurovascular Assessment during Thoracoabdominal Aneurysms and Carotid Endarterectomies.
Neurovascular Assessment focuses on the integrated functioning of the vascular system and the nervous system. Neural structures are highly dependent on blood flow, and the slightest variation in vascular perfusion may lead to neurovascular compromise. Neurophysiologists closely monitor the neural structures at risk and quickly identify irregularities in blood flow that may lead to paresthesia or paralysis. During high risk surgical procedures, delaying detection of neurovascular compromise can have long term irreversible effects, such as loss of neural function or even death.
