Default thoracic spine

A 35-year-old man injured his thoracic spine in a motor vehicle accident 2 years ago. Initially he had a bilateral spastic paraparesis and urinary urgency, but this has improved. He still has pain and thermal sensation loss on part of his left body and proprioception loss in his right foot. There is still a paralysis of the right lower extremity as well. This patient most likely has which of the following spinal cord conditions?
Brown-Séquard (hemisection) syndrome
Complete transection
Posterior column syndrome
Syringomyelic syndrome
Tabetic syndrome

Default brown sequard

i think brown sequard, the classic differential loss of pain, temperature, jps and motor function.
the initial bilateral spastic paraparesis why? maybe hematoma compressing the whole section of sc which has since resolved so that the hemisectional problem can manifest fully.

pls whats the ans
