  • Spinal Cord Infarction

    Although the patient could stand on her left leg, she was unable to stand on her right leg.[jaclinicalreports.springeropen.com] To reduce the risk of hypotensive sequelae such as spinal cord infarction, blood pressure should be closely monitored in elderly patients presenting with retrosternal chest[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Four patients developed hypotensive episodes, two intraoperatively and two postoperatively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
