Bypass

A surgical operation in which the surgeon creates a new channel to bring blood flow to the brain. In rare cases when an aneurysm can’t be clipped or coiled, the surgeon may have to perform a bypass operation, bringing blood flow through a new channel beyond the aneurysm and then trapping the segment of the artery with the aneurysm between clips.
