Spinal Cord Ischemia Summary

Description: Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.

Also Known As: Experimental Spinal Cord Ischemia; Ischemic Myelopathy; Spinal Cord Ischemia, Experimental; Cord Ischemia, Spinal; Cord Ischemias, Spinal Show All >>
