Caval aorta index as a predictor of hypotension after spinal anaesthesia.

Pre-operative ultrasonographic evaluation of inferior vena cava collapsibility index and caval aorta index as new predictors for hypotension after induction of spinal anaesthesia: A prospective observational study: erratum.

Prophylactic phenylephrine and fluid co-administration to reduce spinal hypotension during elective caesarean section in a resource-limited setting: a prospective alternating intervention study.

Spinal hypotension is a common and clinically important problem during caesarean section. Current consensus recommendations for resource-rich settings suggest the use of a titrated phenylephrine infus...

Incidence of intraoperative hypotension in acute traumatic spinal cord injury and associated factors.

The importance of maintaining mean arterial pressure (MAP) > 85 mm Hg for patients with acute spinal cord injury (SCI) is well documented, because systemic hypotension greatly increases the risk of se...

Spontaneous spinal CSF-venous fistulas associated with venous/venolymphatic vascular malformations: report of 3 cases.

Spontaneous CSF-venous fistulas may be present in up to one-fourth of patients with spontaneous intracranial hypotension. This is a recently discovered type of CSF leak, and much remains unknown about...

Use of Perfusion Index Change as a Predictor of Hypotension During Propofol Sedation in Adult Patients Undergoing Lower Extremity Orthopedic Surgery Under Spinal Anesthesia: A Prospective Observational Study

This observational study is to evaluate Perfusion Index Change as a Predictor of Hypotension During Propofol Sedation in Adult Patients Undergoing Lower Extremity Orthopedic Surgery Under ...

Perfusion Index Predicts Post-spinal Hypotension in Obese Parturients for Cesarean Section

Hypotension is a common adverse effect of spinal anesthesia during caesarean section especially in obese patients. The aim of this study is to find out the correlation between baseline PI...

Focussed Echocardiography to Detect Preoperative Hypovolemia and Left Ventricular Dysfunction as a Predictor of Post-Induction Hypotension

This is an observational study to evaluate the role of a Bed side Focus assessed Transthoracic Echocardiography (FATE) in identifying the patients at a potential risk of developing hypoten...

Prediction of Hypotension Using Perfusion Index Following Spinal Anesthesia in Lower Segment Caesarean Section

Spinal anesthesia for caesarean section is invariably associated with variable degree of hypotension. Hypotension that occurs may be detrimental to various organ system due to inadequate p...

Prediction of Hypotension Using Perfusion Index and Pleth Variability Index After Spinal Anesthesia for C/S

Spinal anesthesia for caesarean section is associated with a decrease in systemic vascular resistance and cardiac output and may cause hypotension in a significant portion of the parturien...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.

The portion of the descending aorta proceeding from the arch of the aorta and extending to the DIAPHRAGM, eventually connecting to the ABDOMINAL AORTA.

Ischemia or infarction of the spinal cord in the distribution of the anterior spinal artery, which supplies the ventral two-thirds of the spinal cord. This condition is usually associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS of the aorta and may result from dissection of an AORTIC ANEURYSM or rarely dissection of the anterior spinal artery. Clinical features include weakness and loss of pain and temperature sensation below the level of injury, with relative sparing of position and vibratory sensation. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1249-50)


Surgical venous shunt between the portal and systemic circulation to effect decompression of the portal circulation. It is performed primarily in the treatment of bleeding esophageal varices resulting from portal hypertension. Types of shunt include portacaval, splenorenal, mesocaval, splenocaval, left gastric-caval (coronary-caval), portarenal, umbilicorenal, and umbilicocaval.
