Facial Nerve Monitoring is used in two ways:
During thyroid surgery, >> the C2 NerveMonitor can considerably reduce risk of injury of the recurrent laryngeal nerve which controls the vocal cord. The state-of-the-art technology ALM >> (Advanced Laryngeal Monitoring) offers high-precision signal recording.
