Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Spinal cord ischaemia remains a major problem after surgery of the thoracic aorta. Early detection and avoidance of systemic hypotension can prevent permanent neurological damage. We report a rare case that developed a temporary paraplegia postoperatively, associated with the use of helmet continuous positive airway pressure.
