EPAD Monitoring of Patients Undergoing Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Genitourinary Surgery
Tab Title Description
Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
- Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
- Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
- Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.

About this study
Participants to be enrolled in this study will have been scheduled to have laparoscopic genitourinary surgery and EPAD monitoring as part of their clinical care intraoperatively. Patients scheduled for genitourinary surgery are often at risk for developing nerve injuries due to intraoperative positioning. Somatosensory evoked potential devices (SSEP) are commonly used to detect pending injury to peripheral nerves. The purpose of the present study is to use SSEP monitoring to determine the incidence and potential causes of significant changes in SSEP waveforms and correlate these changes with neurologic status of the brachial plexus after robotic surgery.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
- Patients scheduled to undergo robotic assisted laparoscopic genitourinary surgery
- Patients who are scheduled to have EPAD monitoring as part of their clinical care intraoperatively
- Patients with previous history of polyneuropathy, carpal tunnel, ulnar neuropathy, or similar neurological deficiencies
