AIM: Neurosurgical oncology that is performed for lesions located in critical areas like the sensorimotor area has additional risk because it may cause serious neurological deficiencies. Some intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) modalities can effectively help the surgeons to maximize resections of this kind of lesions with or without an acceptable neurological deficiency. Our aim was to share our IONM experiences with patients who underwent intracranial lesion surgery in critical areas between September 2013 and January 2015.
