A patient developed persistent symptoms and signs suggestive of partial spinal cord infarction after an operation involving the use of the hyperlordotic position. This position involves extension at the waist, such that both the head and feet are below the level of the waist. It is employed to increase surgical access to the abdomen. Where this position is adopted for a prolonged surgical procedure, existing risk factors for spinal cord ischaemia should urge caution in the use of epidural… Expand

SURFER’S MYELOPATHY - NEW CLINICAL ENTITY
Surfer’s myelopathy is a clinical entity first described in 2004. It is non-traumatic spinal cord damage that occurs due to hyperextension of the lumbar part of the spinal column in certain phases ofExpand

TLDR
A 19-year-old man who developed lower back pain, profound bilateral lower limb paraparesis, and hyperesthesia during his first learn to surf class was presented, and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated features consistent with spinal cord ischemia. Expand
Surfer’s myelopathy—an unusual cause of acute spinal cord ischemia: a case report and review of the literature
TLDR
A case of 23-year-old male in whom the diagnosis of surfer’s myelopathy was made based on an appropriate clinical history and imaging findings compatible with acute spinal cord ischemia is reported. Expand

TLDR
SM and its variants should be considered in the differential diagnosis of any patient presenting with an anterior spinal cord syndrome with a history of either sustained or repeated spinal hyperextension. Expand
Worsening of Neurologic Symptoms After Spinal Anesthesia in Two Patients With Spinal Stenosis
TLDR
The decision to perform neuraxial blockade in patients with severe symptoms of neuroclaudication or recently progressive symptomatic spinal stenosis should be made cautiously, until the relative contribution of patient and surgical factors is known. Expand
Residual neurological deficit after central neuraxial blocks
TLDR
The aim of this review is to discuss the most common causes of neurological complications after CNBs, how to predict and reduce them. Expand

TLDR
The case of a man who developed a pure motor paraplegia following epidural anesthesia with a pattern of slow recovery over subsequent months is reported. Expand

Surgical exploration revealed an intradural haematoma and a needle puncture of the spinal cord in an anaesthetised patient, who suffered a permanent paraparesis. Expand
Spinal cord infarction
TLDR
Favorable ambulatory outcome correlated with improving neurologic examinations and relatively preserved strength in hip abductors and knee extensors, which leads us to dispute the classical view of a midthoracic watershed zone of ischemic vulnerability near T-4. Expand

TLDR
A recent very large prospective multieentre study of epidural anaesthesia provides further support for the opinion that the technique is associated with a very low risk of neurological complications of 108 events in 505 000 blocks, only five were associated with permanent disability. Expand

TLDR
Three complications after epidural blocks were paraplegias caused by spinal haematomas in patients with deranged haemostatic capacity, and the connection between neurological lesion and the anaesthetic technique could be argued. Expand

TLDR
It is illustrated that lesions of the anterolateral spinal cord may lead to the development of dysaesthesias, perhaps related in part to selective neospinothalamic deafferentation and preservation of the posterior columns. Expand
