Haruhiko Shiiya, Akihiko Tanaka, Motoki Sakuraba, Masanori Nakamura, Yui Shibayama, Takahiro Tsuji, Yuichiro Fukasawa,

The thoracolumbar spinal cord receives its blood supply primarily from the artery of Adamkiewicz (AA), a branch of thoracolumbar intercostal arteries. Aortic cross-clamping during operation for descending aortic aneurysms can cause paraplegia due to spinal cord ischemia secondary to low blood flow through the AA. A 69-year-old woman was diagnosed ... Read more >>
