Abstract

STA-MCA bypass operation has been widely performed on patients with cerebrovascular occlusive disease since its introduction. It is intended to improve cerebral hemodynamics and consequently to reduce the incidence of further strokes. 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 [1]. This result urged the reconsideration of the hemodynamic efficacy of this operation.
