Spinal cord ischemia is a well-known potential complication of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), and it is usually manifested by paraplegia or paraparesis. We describe a case in which spinal cord ischemia after EVAR presented by isolated bladder and rectal incontinence without other neurological deficits. A 63-year-old woman presented with intermittent(More)
Delayed neurologic deficits, paraplegia and paraparesis, are devastating complications after repair of a descending thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA). A treatment protocol has not been established, although strategies such as cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage, maintaining blood pressure and medication have been described. Cerebrospinal(More)
It still remains undetermined whether endovascular stent-graft placement (ESGP) is the optimal initial treatment for elective cases of thoracic aortic disease because of unknown long-term results. However, it is also recognized that ESGP contributes to better outcome as an initial treatment for aortic emergency, such as rupture, aortic injury, and(More)
OBJECTIVE The risk of stroke caused by dislodgment of loose atheromatous plaque or mural emboli is increased by cross-clamping of the aorta. Some patients undergo descending thoracic aortic aneurysm repair with proximal aortic cross-clamping between the left common carotid artery and the left subclavian artery. The objective of this study was to determine(More)
