Abstract

The report of the EC-IC Bypass Study Group, which was published in 1985, seemed to constitute the ultimate disqualification of extraintracranial arterial bypass (EIAB) in cerebrovascular disease [9]. However, it was not unanimously accepted [1]. Particularly, the importance of functional neuroimaging using emission tomography has received little attention in the selection of patients for inclusion in the EC-IC Bypass Study [10].
