Abstract

BACKGROUND: Adamkiewicz arteries vasospasm in spinal cord subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) can affect the spinal cord. Although muscle dysfunction of extremities is a common problem after spinal cord ischemia induced by SAH, to our knowledge there are no studies on degenerative changes in peripheral nerves. We studied the histopathologic changes in sciatic nerves after spinal SAH.
