Initial post-operative condition with realignment of the angulation and a stretching of the posterior spinal artery leading to a blockage of bloodflow through this vessel. 3. Subsequent condition with a slight ischemia of the spinal cord in the region supplied by the occluded spinal artery. 4. Eventual condition with increased ischemia and infarction of the cord.
