Objective: The aim of this study was to provide an overview of the available intraoperative neuromonitoring (IOMN) techniques such as somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) and motor evoked potentials (MEPs) and their efficacy in spine surgery. Methods & Results: A review of the PubMed databases was performed. In identified studies, the sensitivity of SSEPs was estimated to be between 22 and 100% with specificity of 100%. The sensitivity of MEPs was estimated to be between 78 and 100% with specificity ranging from 83.2 to 100%. Conclusion: Multimodal IONM is a valuable tool for improving the safety and outcome of spine surgery.
