Abstract

Thirty one patients with cerebral transient ischemic attacks and ipsilateral internal carotid artery occlusion without contralateral internal carotid artery occlusion or stenosis were treated with a surgical anastomosis between a superficial temporal artery and a cortical branch of the middle cerebral artery of the symptomatic hemisphere. The anastomosis was successful in 28 patients. Recurrent transient ischemic attacks were abolished in 23 patients and reduced in 3. Two patients, 1 with a patent anastomosis, had strokes during the followup period. Of 7 patients who refused the operation, 2 had strokes, 2 noted a reduction of transient ischemic attacks, 2 noted no change, and 1 became asymptomatic.
