OBJECTIVE Spinal cord injury remains an invincible complication affecting up to 1 of 5 patients after thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair. A staged surgical approach has been suggested to eliminate paraplegia by induction of arteriogenesis within the paraspinal collateral network; however, its clinical implementation was deferred because it required 2 major procedures. METHODS First-in-man experience with minimally invasive, selective segmental artery endovascular coil embolization before… CONTINUE READING
