Update: Introduction of EC/IC Bypass Surgery in Sub-Saharan Africa Through the Valuable Donation of Mr. Leonid Bauer

During the introduction of vascular neurological surgery for brain pathologies in Africa, Prof. Dr. Athanasios Petridis noticed the need for bypass EC/IC surgery. Unfortunately, most hospitals in the region do not yet have the sets to be able to perform bypass surgery. Through the generosity of Mr. Leonid Bauer, a bypass set was purchased and given to Dr. Petridis. He will bring this bypass set to multiple countries in Africa to teach several neurosurgeons how to perform this important surgical procedure.

We thank Mr. Leonid Bauer for his valued support!
