C2 NerveMonitor - Neuromonitoring for Spinal Column Surgery

C2 Spine Software – simple, fast and intuitive

inomed is pleased to announce the availability of our new Spine Software for the C2 NerveMonitor. The new Spine Software is coupled with a release of a set of matching accessories to enable easy and intuitive neuromonitoring during spinal surgery. The software is available on the C2 NerveMonitor platform, which is already used across the world for a wide range of surgical monitoring where user-friendly operation and quality signal acquisition is of paramount importance e.g. in thyroid surgery.

Intuitive controls –   positioning needle electrodes  and connecting cables

When monitoring spinal surgery with the C2 Spine Software, the user is guided step by step. The program provides simple options for setup ensuring the user is ready to perform the test very quickly.  The especially designed accessories have been adapted to the Spine Software. The user is guided intuitively through each step, starting from the correct positioning of the needle electrodes to connecting the cables to the system.  This makes neuromonitoring during spinal surgery an easy standard to adopt as a part of the surgical procedure. The C2 Spine Software combines efficient neuromonitoring during spinal surgery with simple and intuitive operation that has been tried and tested for other applications of the C2 NerveMonitor.

Automatic monitoring of the pharmacological relaxation status of patients

The C2 Spine Software includes an integrated twitch-test (relaxation monitoring). This test is used to automatically check the pharmacological relaxation status of the patient's muscles. This is crucial for effective recording of signals during spinal surgery.

The muscles are continuously monitored when the software is in measuring mode. If a relevant activity occurs – for example, by direct nerve manipulation – the surgeon is informed of this visually and acoustically. Pedicle screw testing and stimulation capabilities of the C2 make automatic identification of the respective stimulation threshold value possible and thus the position of the screw within the pedicle can be inferred. Essential information is provided quickly and easily and is displayed for users during spinal surgery.

The C2 Spine Software automatically saves all muscle responses and stimulation limits in one document for the subsequent report. As a result, it is possible to review every stimulation response for the procedure at a later date.


• Ease of operation by OR staff
• Clear representation of the EMG signal
• C2 Spine Software for operations on the spinal column
• Good quality loudspeakers
• Twitch-test for automatic relaxation monitoring
• Barcode scanner for patient data


• Posterior cervical interbody fusions
• Lumbar interbody fusions

C2 NerveMonitor - Ear, nose and throat medicine: Acoustic neuroma to the parotid

The application of neuromonitoring techniques can considerably reduce risks during parotid surgery

Surgery in ear, nose and throat medicine is delicate, complex and high-precision. This is also the case for surgery of the parotid (parotid gland surgery). During parotid surgery, the location of the branches of the facial nerve poses a major challenge for the surgeon. Monitoring, localization and function-testing of nerves located in the operating field is indispensable in supporting the surgeon during the parotid procedure. Neuromonitoring  serves as a method of choice, delivering lower risks and an improved patient outcome. The most common ENT interventions in which inomed products are used include the following:

• Parotid surgery (surgery of the parotid gland)
• Thyroid surgery
• Acoustic neuroma
• Tympanoplasty
• Mastoidectomy

Monitor nerves, mitigate risk and improve patient outcome: Parotid gland surgery and other ENT procedures can be performed safely

During a parotid gland (parotid) procedure, the facial nerve is particularly at risk.

For thyroid surgery, neuromonitoring with inomed nerve monitoring technology can help  reduce the risk of nerve injury to the vocal cord nerves and thus minimize the possibility of  temporary or complete vocal cord paralysis.

During tympanoplasty procedures, neuromonitoring reduces the risk of injuring nerve tissue when milling near the boney facial canal. Additionally, during mastoidectomy procedures, neuromonitoring techniques are also used to reduce the risk of injury during milling in the vicinity of the bony facial canal.

Surgery in ear, nose and throat medicine is more challenging without the use of neuromonitoring equipment and techniques. Nerve-sparing parotid surgery (surgery of the parotid gland) improves the quality of intraoperative management and shortens operating times. Patients respond positively to the reduced surgical time leading to improved outcomes.

C3 CryoSystem for cryotherapy

Freeze pain with the C3 CryoSystem

Using cryotherapy (cryolesion) techniques, the inomed C3 CryoSystem allows the pain therapist to "put the pain on ice". Effective treatment of pain has been the goal for clinicians and pain treatment experts throughout human history. Both acute and chronic pains represent a huge challenge for patients, as well as their clinicians, and diminishes the patient’s quality of life. The pain-relieving effect of cold has been known since ancient times. By building on the past and using the latest advances in cryotechnology and pain relief, patients and clinicians are now choosing the state-of-the-art inomed C3 CryoSystem for cryotherapy and pain treatment.

Treatment-resistant, chronic pain in the spinal column region is one of the main indications of cryotherapy and thus the main area of application for the inomed C3 CryoSystem. When medicated pain or injection treatments for chronic back pain do not bring relief, neurodestructive procedures such as cryotherapy and thermolesion can be the solution. Using the inomed C3 CryoSystem and disrupting the conduction pathways of pain with cryotherapy, effective pain relief can be delivered to the patient. The precision cryoprobes from inomed allow for a targeted application of the cooling effect on the affected peripheral nerve.

Cryotherapy method

The basic principle of cryotherapy requires that the affected nerve is located and identified using imaging and visual techniques, followed by precise targeting using the built-in electrical stimulator in the inomed C3 CryoSystem. Once the nerve has been located and targeted, the CryoSystem probe starts the process and freezes the nerve. During the freezing process, an ice ball of about 3-5 mm in diameter is formed on the nerve. This process takes around 2 minutes and reduces the temperature of the nerve to approximately -60 °C. The inomed C3 CryoSystem provides the user with a choice of gases to enable the freezing process. These include carbon dioxid (CO2) and nitrous oxide (N2O) gas supplies and adaptors are available to allow connection to the respective gas cylinders. Freezing causes axonotmesis of nerves (disruption of the axon), but the connective tissue remains intact and allows the nerve to regenerate. In view of the precise targeting of the sensory nerve, there is no direct risk from cryotherapy to the nerves responsible for motor activity and sensitivity.

Features of the C3 CryoSystem for cryotherapy:

• Intuitive and easy to use
• User-friendly menu navigation
• The entire cryotherapy treatment and documentation process can be carried out with the footswitch (optional)
• Integrated electrical stimulator (motor and sensory stimulation)
• Excellent low-temperature (cryo) results
• Automatic control and regulation of all relevant parameters, such as gas flow and pressure
• Automatic purging procedure
• Patient management system
• Treatment report with comments
• Documentation of all functions used, including stimulation and cryo processes
• Barcode reader for patient identification
• Device communication via USB
• Data import and export
• Connection to a printer

Applications for cryotherapy

The main indication for cryotherapy is treatment-resistant, chronic pain in the spinal column region, most commonly lumbar facet syndrome. Additionally, they include:

• Facet syndrome
• Pseudoradicular postnucleotomy syndrome (radiating pain after disc surgery)
• Discogenic pain without disc herniation (nucleus pulposus prolapse)
• Coccygodynia (pain in the coccyx)
• Post-thoracotomy pain
• Primary and secondary intercostal neuralgia
• Neuroma-related pain syndromes

This technique offers significant pain relief lasting several months, while additional treatment procedures, such as physiotherapy, can ensure further and continued pain relief. The cryotherapy procedure can be repeated at any time.

Mapping Suction Probe: All-in-one surgical suction & stimulation probe

New mapping method simplifies safe tumor resection in the brain

Dynamic continuous subcortical mapping of the corticospinal tract by Raabe
Mapping Suction Probe: All-in-one surgical suction & stimulation probe

Dynamic continuous subcortical mapping is a new method that simplifies safe tumor resection in the brain. Especially for the new mapping technique, inomed developed the Mapping Suction Probe in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Raabe (Inselspital Bern). The combination of a surgical suction tube and a stimulation probe allows suction during tumor resection and also enables the simultaneous continuous dynamic mapping of the corticospinal tract.

Mapping Method by Raabe

The ability to resect a tumor down to low motor thresholds (3-5 mA) is a significant refinement of the classic subcortical mapping of the corticospinal tract:

• The mapping starts with a stimulation intensity around 10 mA (10 mm distance to the corticospinal tract).
• Current intensity is proportional to the distance of the corticospinal tract (Rule of thumb: 1 mm ≈ 1 mA).
• If a motor response is triggered, the current should be reduced in 2 mA steps until 5 mA is reached.
• As soon as a motor response is triggered, the resection should be continued at a more distant position from the corticospinal tract.
• The suction tip is at any time on the same place where the resection is performed and enables continuous mapping.
• The tumor resection should be terminated by the surgeon, considering the progress of the operation and appropriate current intensity of the cortical MEPs.

The method is based on a resection, where no MEP will be triggered. The method allows a safe tumor resection with better protection of the corticospinal tract and helps to prevent a postoperative permanent paresis.

Benefits of the Mapping Suction Probe by Raabe

• Subcortical mapping with synchronous suction
• Simplified maximal tumor resection
• No change of instruments during the procedure
• Continuous audio feedback: (1) A low-pitched sound alerts the surgeon if a MEP is triggered. (2) A high-pitched sound is delivered when current confirm is activated and there is no motor response allowing a continuation of resection.


• Monopolar stimulation at the tip of the Mapping Suction Probe
• The shaft of the Mapping Suction Probe is insulated to ensure that the electrical contact is restricted to the tip of the Mapping Suction Probe
• Connection cable of the stimulator is attached directly to the Mapping Suction Probe
• Stimulation parameters and the routine application of the Mapping Suction Probe is identical to the parameters of a standard monopolar stimulation probe 2 mm active tip
• Easy connection to stimulators with 1.5 mm touchproof connectors
• Stimulation parameters identical to parameters for standard monopolar stimulation probe
• Connection to commonly used suction devices


• Protection of the corticospinal tract and motor cortex during tumor resection
• Direct cortical stimulation
