Brief Summary: The tethered spinal cord is a common pathology in pediatric neurosurgery. Intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring (IOM) has gained popularity over the past two decades as a clinical discipline that uses neurophysiologic techniques to detect and prevent iatrogenic neurologic injuries. IOM techniques are extensively used in adult neurosurgery and, in their principles, can be applied to the pediatric population. Inhalational agents cause a dose-dependent reduction in MEPs and are arguably considered incompatible with effective neurophysiological monitoring(5) For this reason, total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA), using IV anesthetics (propofol or ketamine) and opioids (fentanyl or remifentanil), is commonly used in spinal surgeries under MEPs monitoring
