What is an intracrianal bypass?

An intracranial bypass is a treatment for blocked arteries in which small arteries or veins are used to provide additional blood flow to the brain.

During this procedure, a small artery in the scalp is directly connected to an artery of the brain, which allows blood to flow around the blocked area and maintain blood supply to the brain.
