Cortical arterial pressure in occlusive cerebrovascular disease and results of bypass surgery
It has been reported that the extracranial to intracranial arterial bypass (EIAB) formation is useful in patients with transient ischemic attacks (TIA) and reversible ischemic neurologic deficits (RIND) in those who have stenotic or occlusive vascular lesions which are inaccessible to the conventional vascular surgeon. This procedure is considered to be ineffective for patients with completed stroke (CS).(l–5) However, it is also reported that some patients with CS show remarkable improvement in neurologic function after the bypass operation.(1–5,7)
