What is spinal cord infarct?

Spinal cord infarct is the result of abrupt loss of blood supply to the spinal cord. Symptoms occur within minutes to hours of the infarction. The symptoms usually include back pain, bilateral weakness, and sensory loss. Most individuals have a good chance of recovery with treatment.
