Ischemic cerebral infarction requires surgical treatment, if based on stenosis or occlusion of an internal carotid or middle cerebral artery. The selection of the patients and the indications for carotid thrombendarterectomy or extracranial-intracranial arterial bypass are discussed. Preoperative testing of patients under hyperbaric oxygenation may be important for the success of an operation. Report on the experience with 128 surgically treated cases.
