Indications for extracranial/intracranial (EC/IC) bypass surgery can be divided into two groups: (1) the prophylactic indication: its value has been accepted but still has to be defined by the ongoing Cooperative Study (8); (2) the therapeutic indication. This indication is based on the observation familiar to everyone performing EC/IC bypass surgery routinely, that there are some patients in whom a neurological deficit is improved immediately after the revascularization and in the following time, more than could have been expected from the natural course of improvement. These are often the most rewarding candidates for EC/IC bypass surgery.
