Cerebral revascularization procedures have been used in the clinical management of actual or threatened cerebral ischemic states and unclippable cerebral aneurysms. An alternative to a low-flow bypass graft (for example, with the superficial temporal artery) is the use of high-flow grafts created using the saphenous vein (SV) or radial artery (RA). These high-flow grafts are particularly useful when otherwise adequate collateral flow is insufficient to enable sacrifice of the parent vessel… CONTINUE READING
