coaptations.

The Workshop on Cerebral Revascularization is designed to increase
the skills of already trained microsurgeons. Permanent development of microvascular surgery and endovascular technologies has increased the need for revascularization procedures.

The Neurosurgical Department of the Medical
University of Vienna has had an important role
in the development of microsurgery.
