BACKGROUND Chronic ischemia because of internal carotid artery (ICA) occlusive disease may result in dementia. The goal of this study was to assess cognitive impairment in symptomatic patients with hemodynamic cerebral ischemia and determine the efficacy of extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass in restoring neuropsychologic integrity.
