A case of remarkable vertebrobasilar insufficiency due to congenital multiple occlusive cerebro-vascular anomalies is presented. Anomalies are of the anterior and posterior circulation, presumably induced by "segmental vulnerability" and modified by infection of recurrent tonsillitis. Symptoms of repeated faintness and black-out attacks and deterioration of cognitive function compromised the quality of life considerably. Successful treatment was achieved by combination of a new type of posterior circulation revascularization procedure, namely occipital artery - superior cerebellar artery bypass via the supracerebellar transtentorial SCTT approach in the sitting position in combination with a standard superficial temporal artery STA-MCA bypass.
