Follow-up Xenon Enhanced CT-CBF Measurements in Patients Treated with STA-MCA Bypass

In 1985, however, the EC-IC Bypass Study Group published negative results about its clinical effectiveness in patients with arteriosclerotic arterial disease in the carotid and middle cerebral arteries . This result urged the reconsideration of the hemodynamic efficacy of this operation.
