Spinal arteriovenous fistula with progressive paraplegia after spinal anaesthesia


Baltsavias, Gerasimos; Argyrakis, Nikolaos; Matis, Georgios K; Mpata-Tshibemba, Stephanie (2014). Spinal arteriovenous fistula with progressive paraplegia after spinal anaesthesia. Journal of Korean Neurosurgical Society, 55(2):106-109.

Abstract

A case of an iatrogenic spinal arteriovenous fistula with progressive paraplegia in a young woman is reported. The fistula was eventually created after repetitive lumbar punctures performed in the process of spinal anaesthesia. Her symptoms were progressed to paraplegia over a period of 2 years. The digital subtraction angiography demonstrated a single-hole fistula, involving the anterior spinal artery and vein. The lesion was occluded by embolization with immediate improvement. The potential mechanism is discussed.
