The influence of hyperglycaemia on spinal cord injury

Jade Hiramoto (San Francisco, USA) tells CX Live about why she believes “everyone should consider normalising glucose levels after long, complex endovascular aortic procedures—and maybe even after open thoracoabdominal aortic procedures.”

Hiramoto presented new research on this topic at the session on Spinal Cord Ischaemia at CX 2019.
