FACTS ON HEAD & NECK SURGERY RISKS

DID YOU KNOW?

As a Health Care Professional you have a strong desire to achieve the best clinical outcome for your patients. This desire is important to you if you are new in the endocrine surgery but of course remains equally important if you spent already many hours operating on the thyroid gland. Intraoperative nerve monitoring is defined to be a helpful tool in this matter.

NIM® NERVE MONITORING SYSTEMS

Based on over 20 years of nerve monitoring experience, Medtronic offers a broad portfolio of head and neck surgery products to help otolaryngologists, endocrine, and general surgeons treat a variety of conditions in adult and pediatric patients. 

Our NIM® Nerve Monitoring Systems enable surgeons to identify and confirm motor nerve function and monitor major motor nerves during head and neck surgery, such as thyroidectomies, as well as other procedures. If there is a change in nerve function, the NIM System may provide visual and audible warnings to alert the surgeon. This helps reduce the risk of intraoperative nerve damage, improving safety and peace of mind for both surgeons and patients.
