Effect of Montelukast on Spinal Cord Ischemia- Reperfusion Injury.

Abstract

AIM Paraplegia due to ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury of the spinal cord is a devastating complication of thoracoabdominal aortic surgery. Cysteinyl leukotrienes are potent mediators of inflammation that are associated with I/R injury.
