|Issue Date:||2019||Journal:||Cirugía y cirujanos||Abstract:||Anterior spinal artery syndrome, usually resulting in flaccid paraplegia, is a rare but disastrous complication that can occur after surgery of aortic aneurysms and aortic dissections. Spinal cord infarct as the initial clinical presentation of aortic dissection is a very rare finding. Case report: A 42-year-old male patient who comes to the emergency department due to severe chest pain associated with presyncope and paraplegia of the lower limbs in the context of type A aortic dissection. Conclusions: Recognizing this atypical clinical presentation of aortic dissection and knowing how to approach it is critical for an early diagnosis and to minimize the risk of spinal cord ischemia during surgery.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/69964||ISSN:||0009-7411||DOI:||10.24875/CIRU.18000357||Source:||Cirugia y Cirujanos (English Edition) [ISSN 0009-7411],v. 87 (4), p. 466-469|
