Abstract

Extra-intracranial vascular anastomosis has been performed in 19 patients. In all cases the clinical picture was characterized by completed stroke (mild in 10 cases, moderate in 7 and severe in 2). The instrumental examinations used to obtain reliable criteria for surgical indications were four-vessel angiography, CAT scan, Doppler sonography and computerized dynamic serial scintigraphy. All the patients were operated on at least 3 weeks following the ischemic attack. The surgical bypass has been realized between a branch of the external carotid artery and a cortical branch of the middle cerebral artery. In 15 cases it has been shown to be well functioning at early and late controls. The value of the surgical revascularization of the brain by extra-intracranial anastomosis for treatment of completed stroke and prevention of further cerebral ischemia is discussed.
