Minimally Invasive High-Flow Bypass Technique: Internal Maxillary Artery to Middle Cerebral Artery EC-IC Bypass (IMAX-MCA Bypass) This illustration depicts a new, minimally invasive technique in cerebral bypass surgery. This technique avoids a long cervical incision and allows for purely intracranial extradural access to the internal maxillary artery (IMAX) to perform a short segment high-flow anastomosis from it to the MCA, using a radial artery graft.
