Abstract

High flow revascularization of the brain is hampered by the fact that temporary occusion of a major cerebral artery is necessary to create the distal anastomosis, which may result in brain ischemia. The excimer laser-assisted non-occlusive anastomosis (ELANA) technique circumvents this problem. In this paper we elucidate the development of a non-occlusive way to make anastomoses to the major cerebral arteries.
