Abstract

Repair of ruptured thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms is complicated by high rates of perioperative paraplegia, renal insufficiency, and mortality. This report describes a patient with a ruptured thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm in whom preoperative acute renal failure was reversed with hemodialysis, aortic replacement, and renal revascularization. Prompt cerebrospinal fluid drain-age reversed delayed-onset postoperative paraplegia and led to immediate, complete neurologic recovery.
