Vascular disorders of the spinal cord
Vascular syndromes of the spinal cord are grouped into spinal cord infarction or transient ischemia syndromes, spinal cord hemorrhagic syndromes, and spinal vascular malformations. Pain is a disabling long-term complication in many patients, independent of motor function recovery. Complications include urinary tract infections or sepsis; pressure sores; autonomic dysreflexia; urinary, bowel, and sexual dysfunction; renal dysfunction; chronic pain; deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism; respiratory dysfunction; and psychological or psychiatric manifestations.
