EDAS with EMS indirect revascularization procedures

In this procedure, your surgeon separates (dissects) a muscle in the temple region of your forehead and places it onto the surface of your brain (encephalomyosynangiosis, or EMS), after attaching the scalp artery to the surface of your brain (encephaloduroarteriosynangiosis, or EDAS). The muscle helps to hold the artery in place as blood vessels grow into your brain over time.
