The STA-MCA Bypass Procedure
Reconstructive surgery of the cerebral arteries must be considered preventive. The clinical experience of most groups indicates that persistent residual neurological impairment cannot be significantly better alleviated by surgery than by allowing spontaneous recovery. The patient best suited for bypass surgery is one who has had transient ischemic attacks. These demonstrate the difference between physiological paralysis and anatomical infarction.
