Cerebrovascular and bypass surgery

Cerebrovascular and bypass surgery are two types of surgical procedures used to treat conditions affecting the blood vessels in the brain. Cerebrovascular surgery is a broad term that refers to any surgical procedure performed on the blood vessels of the brain, including aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and carotid artery disease. Bypass surgery involves rerouting blood flow around a blocked or damaged blood vessel in the brain using a graft, such as a vein taken from another part of the patient's body. This procedure can be used to treat conditions such as moyamoya disease or to supplement blood flow during aneurysm surgery. Both cerebrovascular and bypass surgeries are complex procedures that require a highly skilled team of neurosurgeons and neurointerventionalists to perform safely and effectively.
