Name Spinal Cord Ischemia
Synonyms Cord Ischemia, Spinal | Cord Ischemias, Spinal | Experimental Spinal Cord Ischemia | Ischemia, Spinal Cord | Ischemias, Spinal Cord | Ischemic Myelopathies | Ischemic Myelopathy | Myelopathies, Ischemic | Myelopathy, Ischemic | Spinal Cord Ischemia, Experimental | Spinal Cord Ischemias
Definition 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.
