Paraplegia secondary to spinal cord ischaemia is a rare but devastating complication of abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. We report a case of paraplegia following elective endovascular repair of an infrarenal aortic aneurysm. A cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drain was immediately inserted and resulted in full neurological recovery. This case highlights the fact(More)
OBJECTIVES/BACKGROUND The increased complexity of endovascular aortic repair necessitates longer procedural time and higher radiation exposure to the operator, particularly to exposed body parts. The aims were to measure directly exposure to radiation of the bodies and heads of the operating team during endovascular repair of thoracoabdominal aortic(More)
BACKGROUND Opioid-induced vasodepressor responses have been reported in a variety of species and laboratory models. The aim of this study was to ascertain the relative potencies of different clinically relevant opioids compared with traditional vasodepressor agents in the feline pulmonary vascular bed. A second aim was to study the effects of morphine and(More)
Therapeutic neovascularization is a novel approach used to salvage critically ischemic limbs that are not amenable to conventional treatments. Initial efforts were based on single injections of angiogenic factors but there is now a realization that delivering angiogenic cells is more likely to achieve effective revascularization. Clinical studies to date(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe the evolution of transcatheter closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects (PMVSD) using either the Amplatzer membranous or muscular occluders in a single centre. METHODS Retrospective analysis of all patients referred for transcatheter PMVSD closure from December 2003 to December 2007. All patients met unit criteria for(More)
