BackgroundDouble superficial temporal artery (STA) to middle cerebral artery (MCA) bypass surgery has typically involved more than one linear incision. In this report, we demonstrate how the procedure can be performed through a single linear skin incision over the parietal branch of the STA.MethodsInitial dissection of the parietal branch and creation of a subcutaneous cavity along the frontal branch were performed using the conventional microscopic method. Detailed additional dissection and… CONTINUE READING
