Revascularization in Acute Stage

  • Jiro Suzuki


In cases of cerebral infarction, it was once thought reasonable to remove the stenotic or occluded vessel in the acute stage following onset and to artificially construct collateral vessels—thereby allowing the recirculation of blocked blood flow. It was subsequently found, however, that, the surgical results of those cases undergoing vascular reconstruction in the acute period were in fact poor. Unfavorable results were due to the fact that, in the acute stage of cerebral infarction when vascular reconstruction permitted the flow of blood to a focus where already irreversible changes had occurred, a worsening of the cerebral edema, the occurrence of hemorrhagic infarction and further deterioration of histological damage were brought about.
