CASE REPORT: We report the rapid loss of only lower extremity TCMEPs bilaterally during a C6-C7, C7-T1 ACDF in a 67-year-old female to treat left-sided C7-C8 radiculopathy and C6-T1 foraminal stenosis. The general anesthetic maintenance regimen of 0.3 MAC sevoflurane and 100 microg/kg/min propofol was paused, and a wake-up test was initiated. Full upper and lower extremity motor function was observed. A thorough review of the patient's medical history revealed the potential risk factor of full recovery from poliomyelitis as a child. The sevoflurane was removed from the anesthetic regimen, and the lower extremity TCMEPs returned and were present for the remainder of the surgery.
