PURPOSE We studied factors that influence paralysis risk, renal function, and mortality in thoracoabdominal aortic replacement. METHODS We prospectively collected preoperative demographic and intraoperative physiologic data and used univariate and multivariate analyses to correlate this data with risk factors for paralysis. A mathematical model of paraplegia risk was used to study the efficacy of paraplegia reduction strategies. We analyzed preoperative and operative factors for paralysis… CONTINUE READING
