EC- IC bypass

EC-IC bypass, which stands for Extracranial-Intracranial bypass, is a surgical procedure that involves rerouting blood flow from vessels outside the skull (extracranial) to vessels inside the skull (intracranial). This procedure is performed to improve blood supply to certain regions of the brain when there is reduced blood flow or compromised circulation.
