Revascularization

Revascularization is the restoration of perfusion to a body part or organ that has suffered ischemia. It is typically accomplished by surgical means.

see Intracranial revascularization

The revascularization technique has remained to be indispensable for complex intracranial aneurysms. However, risk factors for low-flow related ischemic complications (LRICs) and neurological worsening (NW) have been less well documented.


A study demonstrated the clinical significance of revascularization surgery in childhood associated with a low incidence of asymptomatic microbleeds in adult patients with moyamoya disease. This indicates that a newly established bypass can reduce hemodynamic overstress 1).
