Abstract

We describe a case of a 76-year-old woman who underwent emergent surgery for ruptured thoracoabdominal aneurysm with the use of partial left heart bypass. Dacron prosthesis was implanted into the thoracic and abdominal aorta (up to its bifurcation), and four visceral arteries were reimplanted into the prosthesis. The procedure of implanting the prosthesis into the thoracic part of the descending aorta was supported by left heart bypass. The patient’s postoperative course was complicated by spinal cord ischaemia-induced lower extremities paraparesis. On the 26th postoperative day, she was referred to the regional neurological rehabilitation centre.
