Elaine Kurie has just wrapped up an illustration for the St. Louis University School of Medicine depicting  a new, minimally invasive high-flow bypass technique in cerebral bypass surgery: Internal Maxillary Artery to Middle Cerebral Artery EC-IC Bypass.

The procedure 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.
