Abstract: Cerebral hyperperfusion and hemorrhage is a recognized complication of endarterectomy, aortocarotid bypass surgery or angioplasty and stenting of the carotid or vertebral artery. We performed 87 balloon angioplasty, stenting and bypass surgery of arteries supplying the brain over the last 15 years. We have found 6 cases of hyperperfusion syndrome in a total of 87 procedures. So the incidence of hyperperfusion was noted as 6.89%. Two cases occurred after two combined procedures in a single sitting. Hyperperfusion syndrome is a well-known complication of craniocervical revascularisation procedures. gut with proper care, including strict post procedural control of blood pressure and staged procedure in case of multiples vessel stenosis, these complications can be largely avoided.
