This case involves a male patient, located in West Virginia, who had a past medical history of Cervical myelopathy and multilevel cervical radiculopathy which was suspected to be caused by cervical cord compression. He was recommended for surgery and was taken off his anticoagulants in preparation. The patient underwent a decompressing cervical laminectomy. A hemovac drain was placed in the epidural space. The next day the patient had regained some strength and was sitting up. His anticoagulants (Lovenox) were restarted. The patient’s hemovac drain was removed. Three-days later the patient was walking and suffered a sudden loss of sensation in all extremities. The patient had acute respiratory failure and a Code Blue was initiated. He was intubated and transferred to ICU at which point the records state that he was quadriplegic. An MRI of the cervical spine was performed that evening which revealed: “Interval laminectomies from C3-C7 since prior MRI with posterior paraspinous hematoma at midline extending along these levels. STAT CALL, CRITICAL FINDING.” Two-hours later the patient was taken to the OR to evacuate the spinal epidural hematoma. Ten-hours had elapsed since the patient had first showed signs of a neurological complication. Post-operatively, the patient had no movements from the neck down and required mechanical ventilation.
