Abstract

The role of surgical revascularization for patients with ischemic stroke remains controversial. During acute phase of large artery occlusive ischemic stroke, extracranial?intracranial (EC-IC) bypass, such as superficial temporal-middle cerebral aretery (STA-MCA) bypass sugery, has been rarely performed. We report a case of successful emergency STA-MCA bypass surgery to stop the neurologic deterioration and improve the hemodynamic compromise in a patient with acute symptomatic MCA occlusion associated with hypoperfusion.
