PMID:  25082382     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
OBJECTIVES: Acute spinal cord ischemia syndrome (ASCIS) due to coronary invasive intervention is rarely seen. In this case report we wish to highlight the mortality and morbidity of this entity.
METHODS: Case report.
RESULTS: A 60-year-old woman, diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction, presented with paresthesia and paraparesis of her legs after coronary invasive intervention. Magnetic resonance imaging showed hyperintensity from T6 to T10 consistent with ASCIS. Despite immediately starting rehabilitation program the patient never regained ambulation.
CONCLUSION: Spinal cord infarction secondary to coronary intervention is rare, but when it presents the mortality and morbidity are high.
