OBJECTIVE Delayed neurologic deficit after thoracoabdominal or thoracic aortic repair is an unusual complication. We previously examined the preoperative risk factors associated with immediate neurologic deficit to consider their relationship to delayed neurologic deficit. In the current study we wanted to determine whether postoperative events influence the likelihood of delayed neurologic deficit, independent of preoperative risk factors. METHODS We studied postoperative hemodynamics and… CONTINUE READING
