Autonomic Dysreflexia (AD) Spinal Cord Lesion (SCL) Blood Pressure
Urology, Urogynaecology and Female & Functional Urology, Bowel Dysfunction, Pure and Applied Science, Conservative Management

Autonomic Dysreflexia (AD) is a common complication among patients with Spinal Cord Lesion (SCL) located above the T6 level. Various stimuli below the spinal cord lesion may initiate the onset of AD. In most cases, the phenomenon subsides after the removal of the initial stimuli but sometimes is rapidly reactivated and progressive overexpressed causing uncontrolled blood hypertension with the severe danger of stroke or other cardiovascular accidents (CVAs).
The establishment of adequate awareness among the health care providers and the individuals with SCL is our mean goal which may occur by a deep understanding of the pathophysiology of AD. The proper prevention and management of the syndrome are essential for our patient’s life.
