The article presents a review of 203 patients who were treated with microvascular bypass for stroke. Microvascular extracranial-intracranial arterial bypass has been developed to augment cerebral blood flow by making an artificial collateral anastomosis. Most patients are Caucasian males with an average age of 59 years. The obvious benefit of a bypass is the prevention of strokes; the largest patient group is composed of those with transient ischemic attacks and reversible ischemic neurologic deficits. Progressive stroke has a stuttering onset and causes a slowly deteriorating deficit, suggesting expansion of the brain ischemic zone.

    Off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) requires heart manipulation during exposure of the lateral and posterior walls of the heart, which may cause hemodynamic instability, mainly through right ventricular dysfunction. A coaxial atrial cannula connected to a minicentrifugal pump was developed...

    There is a major difference in thrombogenicity between lower extremity prosthetic and autologous vein bypass grafts, and arterial blood flow shear rate is known to influence thrombus formation. Despite this association, there has been little direct clinical observation of shear rates in bypass...
