Spinal cord ischemia is a rare and devastating complication after elective abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. It has recently been reported to occur after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair. We report the first case of delayed neurologic deficit after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair using the Zenith (Cook) device.
