Tapia syndrome: an unusual complication following posterior cervical spine surgery.
Br J Neurosurg. 2019 Apr; 33(2):217-218.BJ

Abstract

Tapia syndrome, a rare complication of posterior cervical surgery, characterised by concurrent paralyses of recurrent laryngeal branch of vagus and hypoglossal cranial nerves, occurred in a patient after posterior cervical foraminotomies for radiculopathy. We discuss hypothesised pathophysiology, and diagnostic, therapeutic and avoidance strategies in relevance to prone neurosurgical procedures.
