PMID:  6868576     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In 400 patients who have had neurosurgical microvascular bypass operations by one surgeon for problems of cerebrovascular occlusion disease, the results are encouraging, particularly in those who had transient ischemic attacks with hemodynamic lesions previously considered inoperable or inaccessible. The permanent neurologic morbidity rate is 2 percent and the present operative mortality is 2.5 percent. The incidence of stroke to date on the side of a functioning bypass is 0.9 percent per year. Average duration of follow-up is 43 months.
