Severe neurologic impairment had occurred in more survivors in the epinephrine group versus the placebo group at the time of hospital discharge (31.0 versus 17.8 percent).
Patisiran also demonstrated halting or improvement in the modified Neurologic Impairment Score+7 (mNIS+7) primary endpoint in patients regardless of baseline neuropathy severity, in contrast to the progression in mNIS+7 seen in placebo-treated patients.
Furthermore, based on a quartile analysis of baseline Neurologic Impairment Score, patisiran demonstrated halting or improvement in the modified NIS+7 primary endpoint in patients regardless of baseline neuropathy severity, in contrast to the progression in mNIS+7 seen in placebo-treated patients.

Once standardized diagnostic criteria and unified terminology are adopted, larger long-term prospective studies may be of interest for further risk stratification of complications associated with this entity.
With a greater than 10% reported risk of complications including neurologic injury with surgical intervention (6,8,11), some authors have indicated that non-surgical treatment may be suitable for patients in the absence of functional limitations or neurologic impairment. (5-8) In the current case, the patient had clinical and radiologic evidence of instability but no significant functional limitations, postural deformities, gait abnormalities, or progressive neurologic signs or symptoms.
Researchers observed small improvements in both overall survival and survival without neurodevelopmental impairment, but the absolute risk of death and neurologic impairment remained high.
