Brain Revascularization


The purpose of cerebral revascularization is to bring more blood to areas of brain ischemia. Ischemia is a condition where the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a part of the body

is restricted. The types of revascularization are "therapeutic revascularization" for emergent cases, and "preventive revascularization" which are elective cases.

Indications for revascularization are:

  • Cerebral ischemia, chronic and intractable

  • Cerebral ischemia, progressive

  • Moyamoya disease

  • Inoperable (surgical-endovascular) aneurysms

  • Skull base tumors
