Treatment and Research - Surgery

Surgery can be used to prevent stroke, to treat stroke, or to repair damage to the blood vessels or malformations in and around the brain. The two most common types of surgery to prevent and treat stroke are carotid endarterectomy and extracranial/intracranial or EC/IC bypass. Extracranial refers to the area outside the cranium, or skull, and intracranial refers to the area inside the skull.
