Cortical plasticity after EC-IC bypass surgery in patients with chronic hemodynamic cerebral ischemia

Daniel Jussen, Anna Zdunczyk, Ralph Buchert, Jari Karhu, Thomas Picht & Peter Vajkoczy
Objective: Patients with chronic hemodynamic ischemia have a submaximally reduced cerebral bloodflow and an impaired cerebrovascular reserve capacity (CVRC) accompanied by transitory ischemic attacks and/or fixed minor neurological deficits. Extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass surgery may [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
