Neurosurgeon Pushes Brain Bypass to New Heights
cienceDaily (May 8, 2011) — On the cover of a recent edition of Neurosurgery,
eaders saw an artist's intricate depiction of the high-flow brain bypass
echnique developed by SLU professor of neurosurgery, Saleem Abdulrauf, M.D.
Abulrauf likens brain bypass to bypass surgery for the heart. When a patient has
n aneurysm involving a brain blood vessel or a tumor at the base of the skull
rapping around a blood vessel, surgeons eliminate the problem vessel by
eplacing it with an artery from another part of the body.
rain bypass surgery was first developed in the 1960's in Switzerland by M. Gazi
asargil, M.D, who is considered the father of modern neurosurgery. Used for
omplex aneurysms and tumors deep in the base of the skull, Abdulrauf built upon
he procedure developed by his mentor, Yasargil. Instead of replacing a problem
rtery with a healthy one from the scalp, as the original procedure did,
bdulrauf used an artery from the arm to allow a larger vessel to be replaced.
With this new technique, we can treat patients in a way that minimizes recovery
ime and offers the best chance at keeping their brains healthy," Abdulrauf
Saleem I Abdulrauf, Justin M Sweeney, Yedathore S Mohan, Sheri K Palejwala.
