Abstract: Pelvic floor surgeries such as gynecological and urological approaches pose risks of neural injury to structures of the somatic and autonomic nervous systems. Usually, they are radical approaches aiming to cure the patient. Neurological deficits cause an impact on patients’ quality of life due to sexual dysfunction, and urinary and fecal incontinence. Currently, there is a greater concern with their morbidity and attempts to avoid these sequelae. Intraoperative monitoring (IOM) emerges in this scenario to promote neural protection of the somatic and autonomic nervous systems. This chapter discusses the main peculiarities of IOM tests for the somatic and autonomic nervous systems in pelvic floor surgeries (gynecological and urological), considering their performance from a practical point of view. The main limitations and difficulties of IOM of the autonomic nervous system are also addressed. © The Editor(s) (if applicable) and The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2022.
