Acute Transverse Myelitis in a Case of Gastric Adenocarcinoma Following Gastrectomy: A Rare Occurrence

 

Mide Adenokarsinomu Tanılı Hastada Gastrektomi Sonrası Gelişen Nadir Bir Durum: Akut Transvers Miyelit

Abstract

Acute transverse myelitis is a rare complication after surgical intervention. This is most likely related to the use of spinal or epidural anesthesia and is very rare after general anesthesia. In this article, we aimed to present a case of acute transverse myelitis that developed after laparoscopic total gastrectomy under general anesthesia.

Özet

Cerrahi müdahaleden sonra akut transvers miyelit nadir görülen bir komplikasyondur. Bu durumun öncelikle spinal veya epidural anestezi ile ilişkili olabileceği düşünülmekte olup genel anesteziden sonra çok nadir görülmektedir. Bu yazıda genel anestezi eşliğinde laparoskopik total gastrektomi sonrası gelişen akut transvers miyelit olgusunu sunmayı amaçladık.
