Early surgical management after traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) is nowadays recommended. Since posttraumatic ischemia is an important sequel after SCI, maintenance of an adequate mean arterial pressure (MAP) within the first week remains crucial in order to warrant sufficient spinal cord perfusion. However, the contribution of raised intraparenchymal and consecutively increased intrathecal pressure has not been implemented in treatment strategies.
