✓ Microvascular anatomical studies were performed to ascertain the most suitable cortical vessel for extracranial-intracranial arterial bypass (EIAB). The three most commonly used cortical areas (the tip of the frontal lobe, the tip of the temporal lobe, and the area at the angular gyrus) were examined in detail. Because of their accessibility and size, the cortical arteries in the area of the angular gyrus offer the most suitable location for creating an EIAB.
