The superficial temporal-middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) bypass procedure as introduced by DONAGHY and YASARGIL (5, 25) has been demonstrated to the satisfaction of many neurosurgeons to increase cerebral blood flow (1, 21) and appears to protect against transient cerebral ischemia and completed stroke (10, 18, 26). It is the mainstay of cerebral revascularization. Occasionally, however, the STA-MCA bypass procedure is not practical for a variety of reasons (22).
