Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Abstract  Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is associated with a low risk of paraplegia. Spinal cord ischemia causing paraplegia following off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) surgery has not been described previously. We now describe a patient who developed paraplegia following OPCAB and review the literature on spinal cord ischemia following CABG surgery. (J Card Surg 2011;**:1-2).
