The indication for cerebral bypass has changed drastically within the latest two decades due to advances in medical therapy and endovascular treatment. In this review, we discuss the various types of cerebral bypass and their application in modern neurosurgery, from cerebral hypoperfusion including cerebral atherosclerosis and moyamoya disease, to the treatment of complex cerebral aneurysms and skull-base tumours. The number of Danish patients treated abroad with cerebral bypass over the latest decade warrants establishment of cerebral bypass surgery in Denmark.
