Beschreibung des Verlags

INTRODUCTION Spinal cord infarction (SC infarction), or spinal cord stroke, is a rare form of non-traumatic incomplete spinal cord lesion, accounting for 1-1.2% of all strokes (Hogan 2006, Novy et al 2006). Annual incidence internationally is estimated at 12 in 100,000 (Hogan 2006). The low incidence results in a dearth of literature pertaining to all aspects of the condition. Aetiology, natural history and prognosis are therefore difficult to define (Cheshire et al 1996, Hogan 2006). The studies summarised in Table 1 highlight the diverse aetiology of SC infarction. The most common causes appear to be related to aortic pathology, although cryptogenic aetiology is also common.
