Abstract

Evidence-based recommendations on extracranial to intracranial bypass for intracranial atherosclerosis. This involves joining a blood vessel from outside the skull to one inside the skull to bypass a narrowed or partially blocked vessel.

This guidance replaces NICE interventional procedures guidance on extracranial to intracranial bypass for intracranial atherosclerosis (IPG348).

Next review: this guidance will be reviewed if there is new evidence or safety concerns.
