    A 74-year-old man with a 50-mm infrarenal aortic aneurysm was performed endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) under local anesthesia.

His paraplegia improved by cerebrospinal fluid drainage, steroid administration, and arterial pressure augmentation. At present, he can ambulate with walker after re-habilitation for 3 months. Postoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed spinal cord ischemia.
