MetadataShow full item record
Aorta dissection that is characterized by sudden chest pain and/or low back pain is a vital condition. Stroke and paraplegia may occur in approximately 2 to 8 percent of aorta dissections. We presented a 56 year old male subject who was admitted to emergency service with back pain and loss of movement in the lower extremities as a result of aorta dissection which is one of the nontraumatic etiologies of spinal cord injury. The arising problems (osteoporosis, fracture, complex regional pain syndrome) during rehabilitation of the subject were discussed and reviewed pertinent to the literature.
